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.
