She stands twelve feet above the flood
She stares alone across the water
The loneliness grows and slowly
Fills her frozen body sliding downwards

    One by one her senses die, the memories fading leave her eyes, one by one the bright birds leave... The water bow receives her and drowns her at its ease... You left me breathing like the drowning man, dreaming like the drowning man... So many verses put together, so poetically, so desperately sad. "Our most beautiful songs are the saddest" Robert Smith

    This and Faith, when taken as a single unit, as they play on the album/CD is one of the most brilliant masterpieces ever recorded... Certainly one of the larger influences on everything I have done musically...
