    "Clay"

    Words sail
    Out into the wind
    Their meaning
    Taken by time

    Your deep seeing eyes
    Ancient stars

    We wanted only to love
    How will I find you again?
    Fate or chance

    A beauty
    In uncertainty
    We fought them
    On great white sand

    Our shadows reframed memories
    We want only to live
    Only to love and breathe again

    Your white waves in the night
    Longing I'm lost
    In dreams of mine

    Blue billowing green waves of grass
    The iron sky
    Turning in the looking glass

    Your deep seeing eyes
    Ancient stars

    You are wonderful light
    My only love
    Sleep well
    Good night

    That's a beautiful song, just listened to it while reading the lyrics here - the link I went to was this one:

    [url]http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/goldfrapp-reveals-gay-ww2-gi%E2%80%99s-heart-rending-love-letter-inspired-song130913[/url]

    Now I've gone and got the album! (album? how old am I!?)icon_eek.gif

    you know what? I'm sick of this thing not doing links properly for me...any moderators out there that can sort that link out for me?

    It's not you. When the URL has special characters in it, such as a '%' the link will fail. The Real Jock software that runs the forums will not read create the link when using the URL button. That is why I created a short url for the same link. icon_smile.gif


    However, it will work if you type in the basic HTML instead of using the button:
