Then I Must Go

This song is by The Battered Ornaments and appears on the album Mantle-Piece (1969).

When the wind brings the death of autumn
To the summer that spent its fortune
Then I must go – and can I keep
These memories from uneasy sleep?

Bright [....] from the [..........]
A paddle of love from the deep
Bright [....] from the [..........]
A paddle of love from the deep

When the sea brings a shining necklace
To the shore where the rats are reckless
Then I must go – and can I keep
These souvenirs from uneasy chairs?

Bright smiles from the battlefield
A beam of sun from your hair
Bright smiles from the battlefield
A beam of sun from your hair

Bright smiles from the battlefield
A beam of sun from your hair
Bright smiles from the battlefield
A beam of sun from your hair

Now when the sky brings a burning seabird
to the fortress where songs are not heard
Then I must go – and can I keep
these reminders of uneasy dreams?

Bright embers from the cities' end
A flash of light from the streams
Bright embers from the cities' end
A flash of light from the streams
