Carried Away Lyrics

by Television

Last night I drifted down to the docks
The water, glittering and black.
The snow fell lightly and disappeared.
I felt the old ropes grow slack.

I thought I'd dissolve when the beacon revolved.
I just get carried, so carried, carried away.
Once I had a ship, yes I had a map
I had the wind like a tree has sap

I sank into these banks of clay
I just get carried, so carried, carried...
Those rooms were freezing and always dark but where we were never mattered
Your head was golden

There was lightning in your arms and then the glass shattered.
It was noon at midnight., the day that never ends
The lamp it whispers and makes amends - everything was more than I took it for.
I just get carried, so carried, carried away.
