lyrics

Come go with me my little lover
We’ll pack our rucksacks and we’ll go live off the land
We’ll dwell among the greenery like we never knew machinery
And we’ll forage and we’ll gather all we can

And if they really want to reach us
If they have to call and tell us all the news
They’ll have to send us smoke signs ‘cause we’ll never own a phone line
Or a carrier pigeon winging through the blue

‘Cause when we’re in this city
Feeling listless and forlorn
We think of walking through the ancient woods
Where wonder is the norm
So let’s leave behind these modern times
That are getting old and worn
And fly away away away away

Deep in the forest strewn with moonbeams
In the boughs and branches where we make our beds
I’ll be your lover like you’ve never known another
Give you a chest on which to rest your weary head

Come go with me my little lover
We’ll start a family and we’ll pack the caravan
Live our lives among the foliage til the day we die of old age
Two ghosts walking through the forest hand in hand

‘Cause when we’re in this city
Feeling listless and forlorn
We think of walking through the ancient woods
Where wonder is the norm
So let’s leave behind these modern times
That are getting old and worn
And fly away away away away
