Marillion – The Other Half lyrics

Air full of feathers
Fluttering distant laughter
Air full of signs and strange magic.
Planets aligned in warning
Trap door sprung beneath me
And I'm falling
But I'm rising...
Downwards into blue sky
I'm rising

Downwards into blue sky
Re-entering the earth
Comet's tail behind me
Signalling a birth
The northern lights, all burning
Hot and cold at the same time
My spirit, white and liquid
And I have learned and I am learning.
But I'm rising
Downwards into blue sky
I'm rising
Downwards into blue sky

I am the other half
And you are what I am for
I won't lie to you or hurt you
I'm not like that anymore

I am with you all the time now
One soul. One mind. One heart.
The other half cannot be parted
From the other half
From the other half
