David Sylvian - Upon This Earth Lyrics

  • (voice of j. g. bennet)
  • Looking by chance in at the open window
  • I saw my own self seated in his chair
  • With gaze abstracted, furrowed forehead,
  • Unkempt hair.
  • I thought that I had suddenly come to die,
  • That to a cold corpse this was my farewell,
  • Until the pen moved slowly upon paper
  • And tears fell.
  • He had written a name, yours, in printed letters:
  • One word on which bemusedly to pore
  • No protest, no desire, your ***** name,
  • Nothing more.
  • Would it be tomorrow, would it be next year?
  • But the vision was not false, this much I knew;
  • And I turned angrily from the open window
  • | agahst at you.
  • Why never a warning, either by speech or look,
  • That the love you cruelly gave me could not last?
  • Already it was too late: the bait swallowed,
  • The hook fast
