lyrics

They watched the rain roll across their windowpane
The evening sky was filled with smoke
'Twas then that in the perfect language of a saint
She turned to him and thus she finally spoke:
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me?
Are my words as real to you
As the beauty of a new and glorious dawn?
Speak and your voice shall be the song.

For all the generations tossed into the sea
For all who were not born for death
For all the long forgotten emperors and clowns
Who sang this song with each eternal breath
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me?
Are my words as real to you
As the nightingale that soon will turn to a swan?
Speak and your voice shall be the song.

And Agamemnon's dead so Electra lives inside a burning tower
And Desdemona's dread was awakened when her lover brought her flowers.

But even midnight's child must answer to the sun
And even we must fade away
But as we dance across the tightrope of our love
I will not hesitate to say
I can hear you
I can feel you
Your words are real to me
As real as anything I see
But when I'm gone
Speak and your voice shall be the song.
