Clive Nolan & Oliver Wakeman - The Argument lyrics

(Watson: The following day, Sir Henry insisted on walking alone upon the moor. This I was much against. So I followed at a discreet distance.
I watched as Sir Henry met up with Beryl Stapleton, but I was not the only witness to their meeting.)

Sir Henry:
This is a time I would share with you happily
This is a time I would share with you now
A moment divine, such as this should be cherished
Life is defined by the paths that we choose

Beryl:
You can't know where this may lead.
We can't hope to find such freedom
Reach beyond these few words that I speak
Danger hides behind all that you seek

Stapleton:
I can see two of you. I can see two of you
I know what's going on. I have got the clearest view
I can see you whispering. You know that this wrong
I can tell what's happening. I can tell what's happening.
Too late, too late

Sir Henry:
This is a time I would give to you readily
This is a time I would give to you now
Show me a sign that my hopes can be founded
Our lives are defined by the choices we make

Beryl:
You can't know where this may lead.
We can't hope to find such freedom
Reach beyond these few words that I speak
Danger hides behind all that you seek.
Reach beyond what you see in my eyes
There's a darkness which threatens our lives

Sir Henry:
My heart is beating now.
My life has meaning now
Reach beyond - Words that I speak
Danger - All that you seek.
Reach beyond what you see in my eyes
There's a darkness which threatens our lives

Stapleton:
Come away with me now, my sister
I've been worried since you've been gone
What on earth do you think you were doing?
Who the hell do you think that you are?

Sir Henry & Beryl:
Too late! Too late! He knows we're here.
Too late! Too late for the anger or tears
Too late! Too late for us to run.
Too late! Too late for what we've done

Stapleton:
Come away now.
Come home right now
Come away now.
Come home right now.
Come away

Beryl:
Please let me go now.
Please let me go now
Please let me go now.
Please let me go now

Sir Henry:
Show me a sign that you care.
Show me the light in your soul
How can this be so unfair?
Why do his eyes seem so cold?

Sir Henry & Beryl:
This is a time I would share with you happily
This is a time I would share with you now
A moment divine, such as this should be cherished
Life is defined by the paths that we choose

Stapleton:
Come away now.
It's too late now.
Come away now.
It's too late now

Sir Henry, Beryl & Stapleton:
Reach beyond the words that I speak.
Danger hides behind all that you seek
Reach beyond what you see in my eyes.
Wait for darkness to fall down on us
