lyrics

As you and I lay sleeping
shoulder to shoulder
we met in an orchard
you were much older
but it's easy to know you
know you by the shape of your hands

reaching up now to touch me
to do more than speaking
your eyes are telling
my eyes are seeking
it's easy to know you
know you by the sweet way you stand

There was a shadow
on a cold, damp wall
it was a featureless version of me
standing so tall
there was a flame
it came from a spark
from the only one I've ever known
who could see in the dark

Oh but time is a tyrant
taking all that is tender
so I wait in the orchard
where I can remember
how easy I know you
know you by the shape of your hands

reaching up toward the branches
for the fruit hanging round you
and caught in a spotlight
where the sunlight had found you
it's easy to know you
know you by the sweet way you stand

There was a shadow
on a cold, damp wall
it was a featureless version of me
standing so tall
there was a flame
it came from a spark
from the only one I've ever known
who could see in the dark
