A Picture of Her Eyes

by The Rowan Amber Mill



A song taken from our forthcoming album 'Disciples of the Scorpion', that has been six years in the making, an album which straddles acid folkery, heady rock, strings and plenty of Radiophonics.


I can't forget the love we made
The endless summer light still plays
On your lips upon your skin
Fleeting moments will begin
And in my mind is a picture of her eyes

In dreams we lay upon the grass
Waiting just for time to pass
You are swathed in bed linen
Oblivious to everything
And in my mind a picture of her eyes

For the plans that we once made
Swaddled in such rich brocade
In the palaces of memory
The only place that we could be
And in my mind is a picture of her eyes

I dragged you back out of the sea
You were lost not just to me
I still return but it's not the same
Just a flicker of the flame
In my mind a picture of her eyes

Haunted by the thoughts that you can't tell me
Every moment lost against the shore
Pin our hopes on the spirit never ending
I'll be here to comfort forever more

Don't let go
I won't let go

Don't let go
I won't let go
