lyrics

I found myself on holiday with fortune by mistake
and fortune was you and I was me and so we'd make
each other for a time upon the gently frozen lake
of what do become memories so easy now to shake

you lay there in the sunshine letting sunshine do its work
and for the rest of the day we let ourselves go beserk
until the corners of the room grew dark and so we slept
and woke to make a perfume of the people we had kept
from dreams that youth delivered to the doorways of our rest
and when we woke again a new day came and we were blessed
with energy and hunger for each other's bodies clean
though finally we had to eat some food between our dreams
and broken was the spell we had so accidentally cast
so back to town to knowing that this thing will never last
but that was nothing to our eyes so blinded by the fact
of being young and having no idea just how to act
and though I look back now as I sit cold upon this beach
it’s just by chance you came into my mind so out of reach
and I guess that's testament to all the simple lives we've led
and how a lifetime can disguise as one day in a bed
and maybe as I thought about this somewhere you though too
about that holiday where I was I and you were you
