Portishead – Mourning Air lyrics

Did I see a moment with you,
In a half lit world,
I'm frightened to believe,
But I must try
If I stumble, if I fall,
I'm reaching out in this mourning air.

Have I got the strength to ask,
Beyond the window,
I feel this fear alone,
Until we have,
Total honesty,
If I tremble or fall,
I'm reaching out in this mourning air

Should I feel the moment with you,
To softly whisper,
I crave nothing else so much,
Longing to reveal,
Total honesty,
I can feel your touch,

I'm reaching out in this mourning air

I'm reaching out in this mourning air
