ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK
"Ghost Star"
(Paul Humphreys / Andy McCluskey)

Across the sky and clear away
Reching out to hold you
Echoes dead across the bay
I wish I could have told you

And sand it blows into my eyes
As love it tries to blind me
Far beyond horizon's fall
The darkness yet to find me

And on that night and in that way
You wove your magic slowly
The broken boy is healed again
I fall into you wholly

Unforgiving and now all alone
Where's the beauty that you bled?
When you've buried all the pain that you have known
I will carry you to bed

Where's the perfect that you used to know?
Where's the rainbow in your head?
When you've cast all your enemies to stone
Who will carry you to bed?

Take the feelings I used to know
Keep them with you in my stead
Someday when all the wild hordes have been tamed
You will welcome me to bed
