Systems Of Romance
LYRICS...
Systems of Romance
Echoes of pleasure
A shiver in the dark
When you call my name

Sudden horizons
Open and close between us
Touching me briefly
With a healing grace

Patterns of longing
Figures down echo causeways
Across the wild seas
We spin away
Time and again

Systems of Romance
Systems of Romance

Oh meet me and change me
In rooms that go sailing
Voices will name you
As you move away

Lakeland in silver
Blazing away behind you
Rapids of cloud
I lose my way
Time and again

Endless horizons...
Hopes are our empires now
Crossing all codings
Engaged in the timeless dance

Systems of Romance
Systems of Romance

NOTES...
"Written in 1978 and I used the title for another album. The main song was written swiftly, but I didn't quite have time to finish the main theme. Didn't fit on Metamatic so I kept it. One of those songs that takes about ten minutes to write and you just know it works."
