Lyrics

Briefest of flights,
Way over the water,
Leading down to caves,
Boring at the pressure,
To where diamonds shine,
Where you were mine.

I took you to water,
To mountains,
Breaking from the land beneath,
Where diamonds shine.

And the clouded wreath,
Above them rode the dragons,
With silver arteries,
And the lover's nest
Where you were mine.

There were monsters there,
They greeted you,
They greeted me,
They tore at both of us,
Quite gratefully, belatedly,

And admittedly: I fell into their arms.
I fell into their arms.
I fell into their arms.
I fell into their arms.
I fell into their arms.

The trees are uprooted in the wind,
My heart is uprooted from inside another,
I face up to the challenge,
Face up to the challenge,
Face up to the challenge of what I once did promise,
Face up to the challenge of what I once did promise,
Up in Beijing, what I once did promise,
Up in Beijing, what I once did promise.

And as the lights turn on in the evening, I'm gone,
On a motorbike across Taiwan,
Down to Kaohsiung,
To the port town,
To the KTV,
Where the harlequins,
The harlequins,
The harlequins scamper for the bedrooms.

I still have the photograph.
I still have the photograph.
I still have the photograph.
I still have the photograph.
