"And so it is"

In this life I’ve left behind
So many lovers and so many lives
I think back now and can’t retrace
Their names or smiles, sometimes a face

And there you were for the first time
Your piercing glance just left me blind
The seeping bleakness of my life
Began to drown in your sun light.

And when each night I go to sleep
You’re never quite not in my dreams
Your perfect eyes, the things they said
Are like a song stuck in my head

I still can see that autumn day
The turtle neck that held your face
A few freckles, a little trace
Your innocents I still can taste

And if i could in time and place
I’d bottle you in outer space
I’d never let you see this world
I’d hide it from you smiley girl

And then each night I’d try to sleep
You’re never quite not in my dreams
Your perfect eyes, the things they said
Were like a song stuck in my head

Now your eyes are slightly jaded
Your love for this has slowly faded
As I hum “The Blower’s Daughter”
“And so it is, the colder water”

“And so it is, Just like you said”
Plays over, over in my head
“And so it is, Just like you said”
Plays over, over in my head

So once you left I can’t forget
Our first night, the first we met
Just like a song stuck in my head
Plays over, over in my head
Over, over and again

"And so it is"
