All On The First Day

Back to Album listing


All on the first day
On the first day of the year
You tried to destroy part of me
Like you always do each time you’re near
As a child I watched the dewdrops
Picked out each pool of night that lay therein
And I knew our love would be black as that
And that we would never win

And it was all on the first day, on the first day
All on the first day of the year

All on the first day
On the first day of the year
You told me what it was I thought and felt
And you showed me, and you showed me what you fear
You came in like some Giant Urizen
With the shackles, with the shackles at your heel
And I knew our love would be like that
And that we could never feel

And it was all on the first day, on the first day
All on the first day of the year

All on the first day
You know my mind was full of snow
When I knew our love was over
And that we would never grow

And it was all, and it was all, it was all, it was all
All on the first day of the year
