10,000 Maniacs Lyrics

Across The Fields Lyrics

Well they left then in the mornin'
A hundred pairs of wings in the light moved together
In the colors of the mornin'
I looked to the clouds in the cirrus sky and they'd gone

Across the marshes, across the fields below
Oh, I fell through the vines and I hoped they would catch me below
If only to take me with them there
Tell me the part that shines in your heart on the wind

Across the marshes, across the fields below
Oh, I fell through the vines and I hoped they would catch me below

And the reeds blew in the mornin'
Take me along to the places you've gone when my eyes looked away
Tell me the song that you sing in the trees in the dawnin'
Tell me the part that shines in your heart and the rays of love forever
Please take me there
