Al Stewart - Where Are They Now Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I sent my crack divisions through the early morning mist
  • When they fell on your positions you were powerless to resist
  • Encircling and probing for the weakness in your line
  • By night you were surrounded; your territory mine
  • I called for your surrender; this you swore you would not do
  • So I stormed the very fortress, you thought could shelter you
  • I held you then upon your knees and turned to give my thanks
  • To the regiments assembled in their ranks
  • CHORUS
  • Where are they now?
  • Where are they now?
  • I raised you to your feet, with your hand inside my own
  • We set off upon a journey, each together, each alone
  • In the days that followed oh our lives did overlap
  • I learned the contours of your body like the roads upon a map
  • You sweetened every evening, I savoured every day
  • Just when I was certain it would always be this way
  • You slipped beyond the reach of my outstretched fingertips
  • With all the kisses we'd placed upon your lips
  • CHORUS
  • Oh close. You're close
  • Someone, come shine a light
  • Oh near. So near
  • But just out of sight
  • I went in search of alchemy to resurrect the dead
  • Sent my spies to fathom out the secrets in your head
  • They said they heard your laughter
  • Spinning through the summer night
  • In the company of strangers
  • And your eyes were wild and bright
  • Though I grew reclusive and my days became withdrawn
  • I held the banner of our love, now tattered and forlorn
  • And swore that it would one day fly above us once again
  • To do this, I had my reasons then
  • CHORUS
  • Close. You're close
  • Once again, come shine a light
  • Oh near. So near
  • But just out of sight
  • Perhaps there are some passions that are tempered by the years
  • You reach accomodation, the intensity recedes
  • Some of this occurred to me the time I saw you last
  • Your face familiar in a way. Your voice out of the past
  • Every gamut of emotion shared from tenderness to rage
  • Fell away between us in the turning of that page
  • It seemed like only yesterday we swore that we'd be true
  • Two innocents believing that they knew
  • CHORUS
