The lights of this city are the sparks of your ashes
I see a summer storm that hadn't come now it has
And in the ones I love all I can see are future ghosts
The ones who are closest, the ones I'll miss the most

In the lightning shimmer, in the lightning shimmer
In the lightning shimmer
I see through space and time with these x-ray specs

The bath is full of fantasy and the perfume of relief
In the night flowers rave from earth as dark as grief
In the shadow of this cape I want everything to move
If the music stops my mind?s in the grave not the groove

In this lightning shimmer, in this lightning shimmer, in this lightning shimmer
I see through space and time with these x-ray specs
I see through space and time with these x-ray specs
I see through space and time...

Then the music stops, zero's the sound, so I go outside, my cheek to the ground
Can I hear you? Am I near you? Can you hear me? Are you near me...
I wanted to spend so much more time with you

In the light of the country the dust of certainty
On river roads I drift pollen from the sacred tree
Rushing through mountains as music starts again
My heart an eagle in a forest before she flies again

And she will fly, and she will fly
Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly...

And I feel her move with these x-ray specs
Over magnificent miles her wild wings flex
Above romantic smiles and affectionate sex
I see her fly toward another with these x-ray specs
With these x-ray specs... with these x-ray specs
Lifted over my eyes, lifted over my eyes
Lifted over my eyes
