Our Darkness (Remix)

length: 6:24
composer: David Harrow, Anne Clark
lyricist: Anne Clark, David Harrow

Through these city nightmares you'd walk with me
And we'd talk of it with idealistic assurance
That it wouldn't tear us apart
We'd keep our heads above the blackened water
But there's no room for ideals in this mechanical place
And you're gone now

Through a grimy window that I can't keep clean
Through billowing smoke that's swallowed the sun
You're nowhere to be seen

Do you think our desires still burn
I guess it was desires that tore us apart
There has to be passion
A passion for living, surviving
And that means detachment
Every-body has a weapon to fight you with
To beat you with when you are down
There were too many defence between us
Doubting all the time
Fearinf all the time
Doubting all the time
Fearinf all the time
That like these urban nightmares
We'd blacken each other skies

When we passed the subway we tried to ignore our fate there
Of written threats on endless walls
Unjustified crimes carried on stifled calls
Would you walk with me now through this pouring rain
It used to mingle with our tears then dry with the hopes
That we left behind
It rains even harder now .

The Sitting Room (Later On) (M.H. 23.11.84)

length: 3:04
composer: Dominic Appleton, Andrea Laschetti, Anne Clark, Gary Mundy
lyricist: Anne Clark
You are just a tenant here, you say
Living in and out of this life
As cheaply as you can

I sit here in the darkness
Gently
Like an old woman
Thoughts knot and click like brittle bones
Doing too much
Trying to question all of this
Trying so hard to fade out
In the blackness
All of the fear
All of the tears that bring us to this

Sometimes it is better that we sit
Here in the silence
I don't look at you
And you don't seem to notice
And the reasons -
The reasons are impossible to see Converge
They gather like dust upon a shelf

You are just a tenant here, you say
Living in and out of this life
As cheaply as you can
