  • So young for death,
    We walk in shoes too big
    But you play it like a poet,
    Like you always did.
    And I lay face upturned on the palm of God,
    Pushed on by the fingertips of dreams,
    They haunted me,
    Consoling me.

    And I would like to call, call it beauty,
    Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
    And I would like to call it beauty

    You slept a sigh like the angels speak,
    And we danced into tomorrow on bleeding feet
    And I had thought that I would die here
    But you pushed me on,
    You pushed me on,
    You pushed me on

    (Oh) And I would like to call it beauty,
    Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
    And I would like to call it beauty

    You can keep it all locked up in your leaden chest
    Or you can lay mouth open on the water's edge
    But all your angels and your God will stitch and wash you

    Oh I would like to call, call it beauty,
    Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
    And I would like to call it beauty Writer/s: PHILIP JOSEPH RAE, RAE CORINNE JACQUELINE BAILEY
