John Greaves - How Beautiful You Are lyrics

From the window of our honeymoon,
the night looks a mite bizarre
They're burning us in effigy
and smoke's blotting out the stars
They're torturing our servants
by the light of an armoured car
Please don't ask if it's the end of the line –
you know I never could see that far
Tonight I'd rather look at you,
How beautiful you are

If they ask you "what are lovers?",
tell them "lovers are"
Set against the order,
we live outside the law
I'm no hero under torture,
I'll tell them all I heard and all I saw
I saw everything in you, my love,
it seems it's all I ever saw…
Tonight I see it all anew,
How beautiful you are

Pass me the binoculars –
no, no, leave them where they are
Don't want my vision magnified,
I don't need to see that far
From the window of our honeymoon,
draw the curtains cross the bars
Let's spare ourselves that spectacle,
the problem's theirs not ours
Tonight I'd rather look at you,
How beautiful you are
