MEMORY
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

Looking at a photograph
Of a faded, frozen face I thought I knew
And I don't know the place or time
The feeling's but a trace defined by you

The sun caught your shadow stalking
Sees you walk across the moon
And in my mind you left behind
A footprint like the sign upon the rune

And a bright blue flame remains

Creatures cry when you catch their eye
In your hand, and they don't understand
Cos they were only laughing at the path
That you were tracking in the sand

With a shadow for a footstep
And a curtain for a wall
You're a whisper in a conversation
Cos no-one heard you call

And just a bright blue flame remains
And remembers like the embers of the forest
Where the burning trees smell of memory
Of memory

Maybe I'm
not on your mind
I never stopped to ask, you thought I knew
And I don't know what you believe
But you can't see the dark side of the moon
And I can't read the sign upon the rune

And a bright blue flame remains
And remembers like the embers of the forest
Where the burning trees smell of memory
Of memory
