ATLANTIS - THOMAS BOVE
00:00 / 00:00

O, Atlantis, ocean spray

if there’s a word that says it all, well what’s the Rhyme

if you could cry with confidence, this is Time

Lightly blow the sea winds, gently roll the waves

through the open windows, ‘cross the architraves

gladly speak the English, warmly do they fawn,

on the rings of Mercury’s dawn…

After all is done, that’s the path you turned on,

chasin’ after dreams

circlin’ kites and flags, past the mountain crags,

where the eagles stream

Is it love, that tears them apart at the seam,

that conquers, and destroys

yes love or what, that rattles with sabers unseen,

that savours every joy?

Eve was doing fine, Jake was in his prime,

Melanie’s over the rainbow

Eve’s now doing time, Jake is under the lime,

Melanie’s over the moon

Is it love that catches them round in mid-air,

sends sprawling to the ground

yes love or what, that slates them from navel to hair

weaves mountains out of sound

Keep runnin’ on the line, there’s nothin’ either side

the world will be obliged

or raid a cattle farm, and build a raging fire

your head has quite turned to stone

O, Atlantis, under the waves

yielding the city of light, anyway

even your wisest ones the children, sailed away

Eve was doing fine, Jake was in his prime,

Marylin’s over the rainbow

Eve’s now doing time, Jake is under his lime,

Meredith’s over the moon
