James – The Lake lyrics
He said I must be dreaming

But I thought I heard the sound

The sound that lovers make

As they drop down from the window

Quiet as cats, across the courtyard

Moving from shadow to shadow

Past the guards to the forest

So quiet in her still reflection

Drawing them down, drawing them down to the lake

To the centre of her attention



Steal the moon tonight

Before the morning

Steal the moon tonight

I just love a good mystery



And on the West Bank a boat is being pulled

Across the sands they move so softly

Slip into water

Oars dip, don't break the moon's reflection

And drift like a cloud

To the centre

Beneath her cool attention



Still water

Still water



Steal the moon tonight

Before the morning

Steal the moon tonight



I want to drown in your moon dream

I've seen you rising from shore to shore

I want to drown in your moon dream

I've seen you rising



Steal the moon tonight

Shine

Shine

Shine
