Lyrics

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wunder-kind
You took me behind a dis-used railway line
And said: "I know a place where we can go where we are not known"
And then you gave me something that I won't forget too soon

But I can't believe that you'd ever care
And this is why you will never care
But these things take time
And I know that I'm the most inept that ever stepped

I'm spellbound but a woman divides
And the hills are alive with celibate cries
But you know where you came from
You know where you're going and you know where you belong
You said I was ill and you were not wrong

But I can't believe that you'd ever care
And so you never care
But these things take time
And I know that I'm the most inept that ever stepped

Oh, the alcoholic afternoons
When we sat in your room
They meant more to me
Than any, than any living thing on earth
And they had more worth
Than any living thing on earth, on earth, on earth, oh

Vivid and in your prime
You will leave me behind
You will leave me behind
