lyrics

With a soft-spoken voice, I'm carried away
To sit on a lamb until the light of day
A note in the stones, left earlier to-day
And I'm a captive tonight, or so I'd claim

But who could have known
Could it be shown?
The moment is lost

My thinking's confused and my mind is a haze
The hours pass by and the wishes take shape
Stories are told, and try though I may
I won't even recall all the things we said

But who could have known
Could it be shown?
The moment is lost

Her colour shines, and pantomimes
All the nifty things to find if I'd only take the time
But who could have known
Could it be shown?
The moment is lost

On the feet are the keys that open the door
It could hardly be less, but it needn't be more
Than the simple fact that they're so well worn
Such are the ways of our stupid war


Her colour shines, and pantomimes
All the nifty things to find if I'd only take the time
I watched her fly, and I was oh so shy
Of all the ways that I could kill her if I gave it a try
But who could have known
Could it be shown?
The moment is lost
