Twilight Of Reason

(For my mother Grace: 1927-2010)

Here in the twilight of reason
Here in this strange new land
Ah won’t someone take my hand

I used to be a young girl
Oh I had my days
Now it’s just my mind that strays

I used to have a husband
I still see his face
But the years since he left are an empty space

I used to sing and dance
Have fun like people do
I forget how this darkness grew

Photographs they tell me
All I’ve done and seen
But memories are few and far between

Here in the twilight of reason
Here in this strange new land
Ah won’t someone take my hand

You can come on the wings of fire
You can climb down from your cross
Just give me back what I have lost
Just give me back what I have lost
