David Sylvian – Before The Bullfight lyrics
I hear your voice way down inside
A whispering sea of towering trees but no reply
A silence so rare and more than I can stand
Sweeps like a flood through life's flesh and blood
And steals away with it's heart

If I'm losing you
Then there's nothing more that I can say
The fighting is on and battles are won or thrown away
But if I could live safe and sound
In God given fields or mountains of steel
Then here I'd stay till you'd gone

Guilty of stealing every thought I own
I will take my turn to fight the bullfight
Every word's sunk in deep
Like the blades of a knife through my heart
But my strength will return to fight the bullfight

As time's come to show
I'm told nothing more than I should know
A ship on the sea that threatens to leave
But never goes this island of blue
Where life clings to your hands like water and sand
Will loose it's way when you're gone

When all's forgiven, still every fault's my own
I will take my turn to fight the bullfight
Say a prayer for my release
When every hope in the world is asleep
And my strength will return to fight the bullfight
