Singapore Song

In the dawn light the scars look pretty Rain is falling and I canít sleep The morning I left The most beautiful Iíve ever seen Seagulls crying in the morning Siren voices, hear them calling Choirs of angels So long Marianne My soul ascends from the realm Spheres of planets, the soul, four levels Nine choirs of angels Christ sits enthroned above them all The stars glitter from afar Feel their beauty pierce the heart I dreamt about you long before we met Tide of forgetfulness in the bloodstream Slip between consciousness Fade in and out dreams And across the dark Atlantic Belfast lies asleep And the river Quoile still winds itís way down to the sea She is star whose beauty is fading In her blue eyes her luck is waning She opened my arms to a million scars I drift Lethe wards on the current I look beatific in the torrent The rain blowing in my face down the avenue Tide of forgetfulness in the bloodstream Slip between consciousness Fade in and out dreams And across the dark Atlantic Belfast lies asleep And the river Quoile still winds itís way down to the sea I dreamt about you Did you wake me? Was I dreaming? You were in my dreams You gave me shelter Took care of me and set me free
