Patrick Wolf - The Days (Original Piano Sketch Vienna 2006) lyrics

The days
Passing days

I see the steeple
And trace to the spire
And the sun set
Deep in regret
Phoenix in final fire

And the time stops
Rush hour traffic slows
And my heart starts
Beating this dark
Through old flesh and cold bone

And I long to be carried on
Just once to be lifted strong
Out of the loneliness
And the emptiness
Of the days
The days
Passing days
Days

I remember I had your love once
Seized my body whole
And in our first dance
I thought by chance
God had matched my soul
But time brought its travelling
Its distance and solitude
And in that travelling
My self damaging
I took my love far, far from you

But don't you
Long to be carried on
Once more I could lift you strong
Out of the loneliness
And the emptiness
Of the days
Passing days
Passing days
Days

Tell me
Have we gone too far?
Or did we get too close?
You've no father
I've no son
But when we come ghost
I promise I will meet you
I will meet you
At the end of the days
The days

Passing days

Won't you meet me at the end of the days?
