Robyn Hitchcock – Airscape lyrics

And in the element of light
The sun reflected from the waves
Inshore it spangles
The child of air is borne upon the wind that blows across the sea
And in the element of summer
The cliffs suspended in the heat
The air in columns
The tiny figures of the world are walking
Underneath your feet
And underneath your hair
Where angels wander
I'll wander too
Where angels wander -- over you
And in the element of darkness
The starlight shimmers on the spray
And falls towards you
Your perfect lover's never there
And if she was, she wouldn't be -- and neither, though, would you
Save your illusions
For someone else
Save your illusions
For yourself
And in the element of laughter
The quick explosion and the slow
Release of heat, you
The tide recedes upon the bones of something beautiful and drowned
In coral and in jade
Where angels hover
I'll hover too
Where angels hover -- over you
Over you
Over you
