Peter Hammill – This Side Of The Looking Glass lyrics

I let you slip away so soon. We all make our futures
But I have lost mine;
I’m hoping for a miracle
But finding no sign… These words are not enough to save my soul,
They just mock me from the mirror.. No friendship no comfort no future no home,
The past lingers with me:
You’re all the love I’ve ever known
Without you I’m nothing
But empty and silent,
Reflecting on all that I’ve lost. Can you hear me? I’m cold and I’m yearning,
I’ve told you I’m burning,
My eyes can’t stand the light… I’m lost, I’m dumb, I’m blind,
I am drunk with sadness,
Sunk by madness –
The wave overwhelms me,
The mirror repels me,
The echo of your laugh
Drifts through the looking-glass
And I am alone. The stars in the heavens still shine
Up above me: how lovely they’d seem
If you were with me
But you’re gone through the looking-glass
And I am left to pass these nights alone. This is my song
I am dying; you are gone. Without you they mean nothing at all The stars in their constellations,
Each one sadly flickers and falls… Like a stray dog in the night
I’ll shuffle off alone.
