lyrics

I William, your ex lover stroll in
what do you think of that?
surely, I have seen the world
this feather's in a well worn hat
you said when I return,
if I should return, we would talk
well, my dear, permit me be the one
who speaks first

cuz I've seen the edge
of darkest war
and combed across
contested shorelines
faces
staring up
at the sky
with no reply

time plays tricks upon you
it does it twice
you only love it when it's gone
but you cannot see it coming back
it takes a cunning thief
with a heightened will
to steal it
steal it back

so, my love
it comes to this
we are all
set to pass
now that I've seen so far
I finally know where we are
I finally know
what I want

I know what I want
do you now?
I know what I want
do you now?
I know what I want
do you now?
I know what I want
do you now?
