lyrics

I saw your face in a passing car
You had the grace of a shooting star
That falls through empty space
I couldn't tell if it was really you
You know, back then I used to think that too
That you were just your face

Back then I was cursed with the second sight
You used to walk in my dreams at night
Or else you'd lay so still
But out here the world moves much too fast
And carries dreams I can't seem to catch
And space that nothing fills

And if you live long enough
You'll fall in love with every face you knew
But you yourself will call your bluff
In all that stuff you claim to've suffered through
It was never you

We love the earth but we hate the world
We want to fall, but we've all been hurled
Like seeds upon these stones
Or like stones against these seeds
Who force the fields to yield our needs
We learn to love alone

Yes, there was a time I dwelled in you
I couldn't tell who was dreaming who
Or which of us was real
I saw your face in a passing car
I saw your face like a shooting star
Or a flame too dim to feel

And if you live long enough
You'll fall in love with every face you knew
But you yourself will call your bluff
In all that stuff you claim to've suffered through
It was never you

I saw your face in a passing car
And how I wonder what you are
What sign you shine for now
And whose dream your dream resolves
And whose bed will break your fall
When all our stars come down
