She put on her shoes And she closed the door He strikes out in the dark falling And the lamplight on her skin Her pale eyes watching him.
Watching him fall
He dreams that he walks Down a street where rain falls And jackdaws settle on the chapel roof With the sound of stones And the sea voice breathing Her face turns through the night to him From the wind dried room within The city walls crumbling.
Oh my floating man Reach out your hand My floating man.
And in a room where the moon is falling down Across the sheets he sees her lying And he wants to hold this love that burns And let it go and watch it dying The candle gutters dim Her pale eyes watching him.
Watching him Float float away My floating man please stay Reach out your arms my floating man
