Lodestar (Harmer Sarah)

Out of the night, into the water We push the boat from shore Breaking the air and the stillness of the bay Intensity of stars reflected in the harbour Silently ignite The oar dips into oil like water And we are away Your hand won't write Not tonight But your mind may wander Into those deep lagoons that you know And your boat will go by starlight alone Da da da da da da da da You sang to the moon In the great black night With no lodestar in sight Out of the night Out of the water We pull the boat back to shore Breathe in the air and the stillness of the bay Intensity of stars reflected in the water Silently ignite The oar dips into oil like water And we are away Under the moon in the great black night With no lodestar in sight And wait for it There are only two things now This great black night And the fireglow And listen! The darkness rings The darkness.... Listen! The darkness rings And wait for it There are only two of us now This great black night, scooped out And this fireglow Listen! The darkness rings The darkness... Listen! The darkness rings Take off your things And listen! The darkness rings
