Tim Moore – The Night We First Sailed Away lyrics

In the stars was the song of the hunter
And your voice spoke like wind in the caves
We lay down in our darkness remembering
Like the night when we first sailed away

We were miles in the sky that we covered
We were thoughts like the grain of the wood
Being arteries grown from the mother
Oh, our loving was meant to be good

And though they say that the ape won't evolve to a state of grace
We will laugh in his face
And this cage that revolves may dissolve in a rage of tears
Still our purpose is clear

Oh, the bells on the sea cliffs are ringing
And like ghosts we will rise from our clay
On the ocean I still hear the singing
Like the night when we first sailed away

And though it's said that we've lost or exhausted our earthly food
Oh, our love is not moved
Be it angels or devils that spin in the final tale
You and I haven't failed

You are Eve, you are Eve in the garden
In your kiss is the birth of my day
I won't believe that it's not as we gave it
In the night when we first sailed away
