Evening Over Rooftops

作詞Edgar Broughton, Victor Unitt
作曲Edgar Broughton, Victor Unitt
The air was thick like honey
Looking from the room
The room had open windows
To let the spring-time through
Evening stood by watching
At the side of summer's promise
The flowers in her garden
Where the envy of her friends

How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end

The smoke hung on the skyline
The city fell in silence
The sunset ripe and mellow
Was the light to write some thoughts by
Her children watched for father
From their window in the wall
Said a prayer for Grandpapa
And maybe many more
Somewhere in the distance
On the road so far away
I heard the sound of life
Though the people left for home

Three birds flew off a building
Standing proud against the sky
Many more flew with them
Spiralled upward like laughter
Faster harder
They rose up in a column
Hundreds upon hundreds
And twice that many wingspeed
Four miles across
Stretched a million miles high
The living pulsing column
In the lady of the sky

Feathers thrashed together
Locked in that huge one
I knew no-one could see it

And now that it was gone
I rubbed my eyes and tried to find
A reason for the flight
Exodus escape or was it just for me to see
Like the mating of the earth and air,
Like water is to flowers
The envy of her friends

How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end
