Laughter & Forgetting

This song is by David Sylvian and appears on the Double album Gone to Earth (1986) and on the compilation album Everything and Nothing (2000).

Running like a horse between the trees
The ground beneath my feet
Gives me something to hold on to

With the reins around my heart
Guided by hands that spread life before my very eyes

Well, every hope falls down on its knees in time
But I'm no longer lost
Every day, every second, every hour in time
Love's my only guide

Are these the years of laughter and forgetting?
