lyrics

She held your camera, you held my gaze
She caught me staring at your well-made frame
But she was sleeping the first time we kissed
The scent of heather on your wind-cracked lips

So you left her
You took me home
Made room for my suits and boots beside your own
Then years of footprints intertwined
You strode ahead and I walked behind
So much time...

Now I can cry above or die below
Now I know It's the hardest of blows
But now I'm walking on alone
'cos you're gone
But life goes on

Absence and silence
Absence and silence

I remember
We were here before
Three easy days in April '84
Made edgy love with stifled cries
Between this valley and the uphill climb

Then wrapped in silence, you and I
In hope that time would pass us by
But it goes too soon, it goes too fast
We get a foothold but it never lasts
Precious time...

Now I can cry above or die below
Now I know It's the hardest of blows
But now I'm walking on alone
'cos you're gone
But life goes on
So cry above or die below
Now I know It's the hardest of blows
But now I'm walking on alone
'cos you're gone
But life goes on

In the maps where I can read you
In the suits where I adored you
All the good and bad I gave you
In the end it couldn't save you
In the view laid out before me
In the photographs behind me
In the space you left beside me
Every trace of you reminds me
Put one foot before the other
Just to stop me going under
'cos I know how much you loved me
So I have to keep on walking
Oh I have to keep on walking
Yeah I have to keep on walking
Oh I have to keep on walking
