lyrics

I saw the great fires burning
across the great shore.
They left a beautiful darkness
when they killed the great star.
I'm gonna find out which river heads to the west,
and if I escape, you'll never see me again.

But I can't leave 'til I find you.
Underneath the black sky.
You said we'd meet on the horizon,
but I can't see it in the night.
All I hear are the waves falling into the sky.
I can still hear you say, "Come see how it sways - That star is gonna die."

I found a gull on the beach.
He said he knew where you are.
He said he knew how to find you.
He said you weren't very far.
Then his last brown feather was torn off by the wind
he said we must hurry, "I feel the fires closing in."

We flew around the great city.
All was covered in dust.
We asked all who would answer,
but you never tuned up.
And then the young gull,
he turned toward the sky,
and he said, "If they ask you, tell 'em goodbye."

I saw the great fires burning
across the great shore.
They left a beautiful darkness
when they killed the great star.
They left a beautiful darkness
when they killed the great star.
They left a beautiful darkness.
