Emerson Lake & Palmer

Just Take A Pebble

Just take a pebble
and cast it to the sea,
Then watch the ripples
that unfold into me,
My face spills so gently
into your eyes,
Disturbing the waters
of our lives.

Shreds of our memories
are lying on your grass;
Wounded words of laughter
are graveyards of the past.
Photographs are grey and torn,
scattered in your fields
Letters of your memories
are not real.

Wear sadness on your shoulders
like a wornout overcoat
In pockets creased and tattered
hang the rags of your hopes.
The daybreak is your midnight;
the colours have all died.
Disturbing the waters of our lives,
of our lives,of our lives, lives...
