That cracked earth

That cracked earth.
Something about the way that we walked
When we stopped on the cracked earth
And shattered glass
That made up our lives
It was something I can't describe

A flame that was burning underground Slowly flickered and went out As we trodded over The broken hills and the trampled plains

You smiled when I said I thought That we'd been here at some other time Some other time in our lives You looked at me as if I was joking And then turned away

And asked if I knew what you were thinking I'll admit now that I didn't But I pretended I did I said that you were thinking Of a knight who'd run out of water and breath And was falling to the foot of the mountain

You smiled and wondered how I'd guessed right And then pretended I didn't

And then you said that last night I had dreamed Of a beautiful girl Who had brilliant eyes And who never let anything touch her

And I wondered How you knew I was dreaming of you
