  • This blue world and her countless sisters
    And all that came before that day
    Our atoms straining to align
    Was the universe in rehearsal for us

    When all the world is sucking on its sleeve
    You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
    And if you plot your course on the windowpane
    You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
    And you'll know to come to me

    In the back of a broken car
    When the blizzard blossom flew
    Reading aloud with our fingers
    What we both already knew

    And the blizzard blossom flew
    And the blizzard blossom flew

    When all the world is sucking on its sleeve
    You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
    And if you plot your course on the windowpane
    You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
    And you'll know to come to me

    A sober midnight wish flies over the roofs and down through the years
    Hope that you and yours are sleeping
    Safe and warm in size formation
    While three chambers of my heart beat true and strong with love for another
    The fourth, the fourth is yours forever Writer/s: Craig Lee Potter, Guy Edward John Garvey, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner, Richard Barry Jupp
