release date: 1995

length: 11:01
It was twilight by the river
I lay lazing with my love
We were wondering and dreaming
Of the starlit worlds above
Where the crimson turns to purple
And the purple turns to blue
How we wished that we could dive into
That strange unearthly hue

Distant moonwhispers and starsongs
Dance like fireflies at night
So dark and rich in melody
So sad yet filled with light
Where the blue comes out of purple
Where the black succeeds the blue
The air vibrates a wistful song
I have not seen my love for long
