lyrics

On the evening of the night before the dead came to greet you
There was a very odd atmosphere in the living room
Like there were many people gathering in there
(but there wasn't)
In a phase, In the shade, under cover of the moon

Oooh
Bar Bar Barbara Boone

In the hearth of the cauldron after all life had left you
Your bones were the brittle frame keeping you intact
Where the season of the soul departs, I came to see you
In the gloom of the morning after you are taken back

Oooh
Bar Bar Barbara Boone
Oooh
Bar Bar Barbara Boone

(NASA sample)

Bruising, fading
Exploding feelings
Where are you?
Bruising, losing
This floating feeling
Where are you?
Bruising and losing
These floating feelings
Where are you?
Bruising, losing
this floating feeling
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?

And the light and the dark will now live inside forever
Between the beating of a heart and time moving in reverse
And that ghost that you saw outside your kitchen window
A horse-drawn coach procession now becomes your hearse

Oooh
Bar Bar Barbara Boone
Oooh
Bar Bar Barbara Boone
