Yes - Into the Lens Lyrics

Memories, how they fade so fast
Look back, that is no escape
Tied down, now you see too late
Lovers, they will never wait

I am a camera

Take heart, I could never let you go
And you, always let the feeling show
Love us all, how you never broke your heart
You lose them
If you feel the feeling start

I am a camera, camera, camera

And you, may find time will blind you
This to just remind you
All is meant to be

There, by the waterside
Here, where the lens is wide
You and me
By the sea
Taken in tranquility

Taken, taken so easily
To pass into glass reality
Transform, to transfer, to energy

Taken, taken, so easily
To pass into glass reality
Transformer, transferring energy
