♪♫The Rapture Lyrics♫♪

Oh pull on the rein And haul me in Back to the start where eyes first blink to see A flowing mane A cut-glass limb And they're falling soaring so rhythmically

Oh pull on the rein And haul me in back to the start Rebirthed in ecstasy with cherubim and seraphim When I was falling soaring so rhythmically Falling soaring Falling for you so completely

The Rapture Unfurling blues and greens The Rapture A swirling violet stream Mystic majestic Entangled in a web of curling vapour thread Encaptured by forces unseen Enraptured an eclipse intoxicating

Strangely not inside strangely not outside Drowning in the middle of an eerie transition And I don't know your name Never been alive - yet I haven't died I hover disembodied in a semi-wakened haze

Floating far above the cloud Sinking far below the ground Only my senses remain

The Rapture Unfurling blues and greens The Rapture A swirling violet stream Mystic majestic Entangled in a web of iridescent curling vapour thread

Floating far above the cloud Sinking far below the ground No form - only my senses remain

Wondering if I dare to say your name Wondrous thoughts embalmed avow you came By the crescent disc rising amethyst How can love remain the same unchanged?

Moonlight plays upon this sunken brow Midnight ink bleeds wet mercurial clouds By the crescent disc rising amethyst Somnambulist unharnessed storms the plow

By the crescent disc rising amethyst How can love remain the same unchained?
