Beauty as it's Told

from Love & Death by Andrey Samode

/

lyrics

Your tearing eyes, your precious smile
Have held this moment for a while.
You are so close that I could feel
Your heart, so far that I can't see
Myself, so here that I could hear
Your gentle whispers in my ear.

A gentle flower in the rain,
The world goes by and looks your way
From moving cars, behind the glass
In dry security they pass
Locked up in boxes from the world
They see the beauty as it's told.

They say the words, they have the smile,
They've done the motions for a while,
They are so sharp, they cannot see
Inside yourself, they only feel
The cold of beauty as it's told
. . . they hit the road.

Don't mind me, I'm passing by.
You thought you loved me at the time.
I dare not hope that I could free
Myself from you, that I could be
With you, no more than I could hear
Your gentle whispers in my ear
Again. I hope that I could free
Myself from you, that I could be
With you no more, and never hear
Your gentle whispers in my ear.
