​The First Day

This song is by David Sylvian & Robert Fripp and appears on the live album Damage (1994).

Bring out the stars
And fade to silence
Let the heart decide
And watch it grow

Ring out the bells
Trading in blindness
Fooled by kisses
Touched by wings

Shadow fall
And water fills the room
Bathed in moon grey blue

Baby came and spoke her name
With promises to call again
Swimming gold in a blackened sea
She troubles me, she troubles me

Counting the ways
To fall without landing
Stumbling into flight
Descent and slide

Compressing sound
From coal to diamond
Words are knotted tight
To chords that bind

Shadow fall
And water fills the room
Bathed in moon grey blue

Baby came and spoke her name
With promises to call again
Swimming gold in a blackened sea
She troubles me, she troubles me

Received by the eye, believed by the word
Be seen to make haste, when the soundings are heard
Don't discourage me

Whittling down the wood with the stone
If the boundary breaks I'm no longer alone
Don't discourage me

Bring out the stars
On the first day
The first day
