I shook from my dream I wasn't here
To shake from my own sight
Shake, ache from the light of everything
Shake for that which sinks but can't drown
Your face
It will not be back again
Oh fate, your face
To summon it away is to back down
I'm not so alone in here tonight
The light shines off the pennies in the street
And love feels such a plausible delight
And now I've learnt the lyrics in full to Auld Lang Sine
Oh fate, Your face
It will not be back again
Oh fate, your face
To summon it away
Oh fate, Your face
It will not be back again
Oh fate, your face
To summon it away is to back down
Now the wolves all howl
And the birds all sing it:
"He backed down"
