Song Description

Romantic swathes of flute & bass flute, lush double bass and sensuous vocals

Lyrics

To learn,
To learn to swallow your fear
Slide ever onwards out of here
To slide, to slide
Like it or not
To cut through the ties and blindly fly

To fly, to fly
To rustle your wings
To feel the world crumble yet blindly to sing
To sing, to sing,
Always something more to say

And you say it's over
but it isn't over
How can it be over
when everything's gone to the dogs?

The dogs,
The dogs are baying tonight
Out in the pale moon's slippery light
and the stars,
the stars are still shining brightly
in just the same way
that they shine nightly

The night, this night
that swallows the day
Swallows the swallows and nightingales sing
a song,
A song from a silvery tongue
To fight, to stay
when you know that you're wrong

And you say it's over
How can it be over?
No, it isn't over
when everything's gone to the dogs
Everything's gone to the dogs
