I was just a boy when I sat down to watch the news on TV
I saw some ordinary slaughter, I saw some routine atrocity
My father said, "Don't look away, you got to be strong
You got to be bold now"
He said that in the end it is beauty that is going to save the world, now

And she moves among the sparrows
And she floats upon the breeze
And she moves among the flowers
And she moves something deep inside of me

I was walking around the flower show like a leper
Coming down with some kind of nervous hysteria
I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hair
Up against the pink and purple wisteria

You said, "Hey, nature boy, are you looking at me
With some unrighteous intention?"
My knees went weak, I couldn't speak, I was having thoughts
That were not in my best interests to mention

And she moves among the flowers
And she floats upon the smoke
And she moves among the shadows
And she moves me with just one little look

You took me back to your place
And dressed me up in a deep sea diver's suit
You played the patriot, you raised the flag
And I stood at full salute

Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
And made it impossible to speak
As you closed in, in slow motion
Quoting Sappho in the original Greek

And she moves among the shadows
And she floats upon the breeze
And she moves among the candles
And we moved through the days and through the years

Years passed by, we were walking by the sea
Half delirious
You smiled at me and said
"Babe, I think this thing is getting kind of serious"

You pointed at something and said
Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?
But it was then, that I broke down
It was then, that you lifted me up again

And she moves among the sparrows
And she walks across the sea
And she moves among the flowers
And she moves something deep inside of me

And she moves among the sparrows
And she floats upon the breeze
And she moves among the flowers
And she moves, right up close to me

C'mon now
