Al Stewart - Where Are They Now
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summer night In the company of strangers And your eyes were wild and bright Though I grew reclusive and my days became withdrawn I held the banner of our love, now tattered and forlorn And swore that it would one day fly above us once again To do this, I had my reasons then CHORUS Close.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 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
