Autumn Moon

Autumn Moon 

Autumn moon hung over in fire over the hill's  
the wild black promontories of the coast extend 
as fare as the eyes could see
I need a place on the sea away from us away and 
away from what we could be
one winter afternoon sunlight that gilds the cobbled 
streets of Montreal 
I saw a small village outside Paris 
beyond the light beyond the sun
that is where my heart hung over you 
under sheets of scarlet satin  
away from vows and other sins my heart gave in  
above the confusion and the fuss of both of us 
beyond the push beyond
the rush my heart felt it was  
going to bust with all the love you gave 
the curve of the narrow street 
reflected back at you and me
there's a place for love and light  
a peaceful time, no wrong no right 
run me and never let go
let's run in the streets of Paris 
until we get old 
the shop window at left 
still follows the old line of the country 
lane that we once played 
there's a place for love and light for the both of us, 
where understanding takes flight
the cars line the street lights 
of Montreal feels so right
with faith as sweet as scent  
there is time for us yet.
