Lyrics
He recognised the way she moved
Her hand on the water
The fire burning in the hull
A ferryman's daughter

Hallelujah
Is that what she’s saying?
Hallelujah
The gods are playing

He didn’t feel the lightning strike
How long was he waiting?
An echo rising deep from the heart
The sound of it's breaking

Not even one more night
Spent here without her
Not even one more night
Sold down the river

The morning raised a million suns
How long was he sleeping?
All his stories shattered at once
Beginnings and endings

Not even one more night
Spent here without her
Not even one more night
Lost in the breakers

I do nothing and nothing is left undone
I do nothing and nothing is left undone

"Remove the blindfold and you'll see the danger's gone
The flower's growing from the stone
Like they told you it would"

Not even one more night
Spent without her

Hallelujah
Is that what she’s saying?
Hallelujah
The gods are playing

I do nothing and nothing is left undone

Performed live in 1995 in the Slow Fire tour

David Sylvian – music, lyrics, vocals, guitar, keyboard

The track was written during the sessions (starting around 1993) which resulted in the Dead Bees On A Cake album. But the track didn’t make it to be included on the album and was only performed live on the Slowfire tour.
