Sing for a Sail (demo)

At the end of time we feel nothing
But Mrs Underwood how I love you so
Could you teach of morals and ethics?
Could you show me love from a billion years ago?
We’ll travel in time to Bromley
We’ll travel in time though time will soon be gone!

Sing out for a sail or a whale to come near
Sing out this night for your lives
Sing out for the stars from afar, how we fear
Strangely as the moon to an Earthsman
Strangely we rush this unusual night

We’ll picnic in cities decaying
Mrs Underwood, I’m learning from all that you say
Of London, of love and betraying
Of brigand-musicians, and palaeozoic days
We’ll travel in time to Bromley
We’ll travel in time though time will soon be gone!

Sing out for a sail or a whale to come near
Sing out this night for your lives
Sing out for the stars from afar, how we fear
Strangely as the moon to an Earthsman
Strangely we rush this unusual night

This conceit that I would love you
Has somehow become more than a pleasing diversion
Though our cities are slowly dying
The doomsayers they rage, in hopeless impotence
We’ll travel in time to Bromley
We’ll travel in time though time will soon be gone!

Sing out for a sail or a whale to come near
Sing out this night for your lives
Sing out for the stars from afar, how we fear
Strangely as the moon to an Earthsman
Strangely we rush this unusual night
