so the story goes lyrics – erasure

i close my eyes
to the sound of the sky and i see
birds in the trees in pastures green

nothing to do
with the time or the place i perceive
the rush of the sea beneath my feet

such a lovely world
oh so magical
precious like a pearl
wrapped up in a sh*ll
build your house of stone
on a bed of sand
time and tide will rise
washing through your hands

hear your heart
see the love
feel the soul lift up
hear your heart
see the love
feel the soul lift up

i lift my eyes
to the sound in the sky and i hear it
a voice on the breeze is so serene

nothing to do
with the time or the place but i feel it
like dust on the moon beneath my feet

such a lovely world
oh so magical
so the story goes
sing the madrigal
what a lovely world
waxing lyrical
see the lies unfold
hear the miracle

hear your heart
see the love
feel the soul lift up
hear your heart
see the love
feel the soul lift up

so the story goes
the lies and the miracle unfold

precious like a pearl
wrapped up in a sh*ll
build your house of stone
on a bed of sand
time and tide will rise
and wash through your hands
feel the soul lift up
hear your heart
see the love
feel your soul lift up

i lift my eyes
to the sound in the sky and i hear it
a voice on the breeze is so serene
