Wuthering Heights lyrics : "The Field"

At the edge of a dream, it seems
I walk at the edge of a field
I touch the soil

Searching for something

To the ground I kneel, I feel

The presence of all who went before
And suddenly
The veil between us is no more


Like a fastforwarding film the surroundings change
The clouds passed swiftly overhead

But the field is constant, at ease
Like a warm, green bed


For aeons did my fathers draw
Their life up from this earth
Now next to this my years of rambling

Seem of little worth

And in a flash I want nothing

But to tend this piece of land
Provide for myself and my kin
By the strength of my hand


Give me well-tilled earth
Under an open sky

Ale and song as the evening goes by
Skin against skin, then an untroubled sleep
All in a simple man's dream

All else you can keep

Here nothing's changed

Save for the lessening of hope
For I've been a rambler, a pirate, a gambler
I don't know

How to make things grow

And it frightens me we keep our fortunes

Locked in towers of glass
And soon we must bury our future
When we lose our past


Give me well-tilled earth
Under an open sky

Ale and song as the evening goes by
Skin against skin, then an untroubled sleep
All in a simple man's dream

All else you can keep

Not lightly balanced are the scales

When fortune's weighed against ambition
Happier it seems is he
Who does not struggle for a mission

No one recalls how the picture should look
All cling to his own little piece of the puzzle
Always on the hunt for new distractions

Gone is the joy of working the muscle

It's like peeling an onion

Trying to remove all that's foul and false
I know there is truth in this ground
Hear the sound

As down the ages it calls

Give me well-tilled earth

Under an open sky
Ale and song as the evening goes by
Skin against skin, then an untroubled sleep

All in a simple man's dream
Give me well-tilled earth
Under an open sky

Ale and song as the evening goes by
Skin against skin, then an untroubled sleep
All in a simple man's dream


And the rest you can keep
