This is the echo of the echo
Of the first song, that lullaby
The heartbeat of the host.
This is the circle in the circle it rises in the morning mist
And rolls along the coast.
This is a lonely life..
So strong a love you don't think about it, so strong a love (2x)
-- middle verse as on record --
Sheets of rain tore down the rooftops
And machine gunned up the beach
Drunken palm trees fell into the wiring.
Faith is an island beyond the sailor's reach
With the edges of the century retiring.
So strong a love you don't think about it..
