I saw you tonight by the light
Of the shining black stars that circle my heart
I saw you come in, though it was dim
I have been listening from the beginning

When you arrived, it was as if we had both died
And gone somewhere else, you and myself

That otherworldly feeling came over me, stealing
My mind was reeling, blood bleeding
Red like my guitar, whoever you are
Cold in the night, I think you're right
To whisper and listen like flowers glisten in a quiet garden

The moon is wizened and it is old as a toad in a Chinese story
The fallen glory of my ego is laid at the feet of all our purposes
And my purpose is to keep on dreaming
I am fishing for wishes, that's where you come in

Though it was dim, when you arrived, it was as if we had both died
And gone somewhere else, you and myself
