  • It's been years
    Since we carved our names
    On a clocktower door
    Before everything changed
    We were big eyed boys
    With the salt on our skin
    And we'd throw our kites to the wind

    And they'd fly on and on and on and on
    On and on and on and on
    On and on and on and on

    It's been years
    Since we whispered soft
    With the torch light on
    And the big light off
    We were tired boys
    With the soap on our skin
    And we'd fall asleep to the wind

    And we'd dream on and on and on and on
    On and on and on and on
    On and on and on and on

    Cos we're circles
    We're circles you see
    We go round round the sun
    In and out like the sea
    I'll circle round you
    You will circle round me

    And in years
    When the torch light thins
    And the clock tower's gone
    And the big light dims
    We'll no longer be boys
    We'll have lines on our skin
    And they'll throw our dust to the wind Writer/s: Michael David Rosenberg
