Time passes slow - fields stretch out across open acres
Time passes slow - the giant steps of mankind touch us so little in the great lands
Our little storm whirls away out across calm wide oceans
In this sacred breath, you and I falling for ever and ever and ever
The news peoples' dull voices bring the distant tidings of great disasters, politicians speaking in some solemn tone, the crisis of a different world, the panic of the thousands, the destiny of millions - so far away
Time passes slow - sunlight sparkles on rippling waters
And the trees they sway - I don't believe in the things that I can't see
Our little storm whirls away out across calm wide oceans
In this sacred breath, you and I falling for ever and ever and ever
