Green Children Lyrics

An August day in the hills of Spain
A pair of children emerged from a cave
The strangest sight, there alone they stood
With skin of green and words no one had heard

The girl was stronger, the boy was weak
With her new mother she learned to speak
And wove a tale of a dyin' sun, they left the darkness
Dark world come undone

They traveled so far, so far
Believing they came from a star
Hmm, hmm
Aaa
She fell through life, through time
Through parallel lives

The men of science, the men of fame
The men of letters tried to explain
Was it parallel worlds or a twist of time
To make her think she'd fallen, fallen from the sky?

She fell through life, through time
Through parallel lives

A whirlwind spun them all alone
Took them from their twilight home
Believing they came from a star
Haa, ahh
