A summer evening twilight. A full moon above the Cotswold ridge. A spark of something beautiful.


Moon on high
Draw the tide
Set the plough
To the furrows wide

Crown the vale with a borrowed dawn
Chase the stars from the hollow corn
Mine is the field in the shadows bright
Aurora in my hair tonight

Luminous, magnetised
Sowed my heart from the fallow skies
Sublimate eternity
Your ascent a call to me

You shine on a world of dream
So near and so real
You light me up, oh
You light me up

You shine on a world of dream (moon on high, draw the tide)
So near and so real (set the plough to the furrows wide)
You light me up, oh (moon on high, draw the tide)
I dream you up
