lyrics

save your breath
I'll be back
wait for me
and take your sleep
without dreams
by degrees

we took ourselves
out on drives
through desert sage
and pine
we touched the sky
but we were wrong
to thinkwe'd ever
get to see the future

now it won't go away
it fades
open or closed
open, oh
there is no mystery
open or closed
open, oh
there is no mystery

don't trouble yourself friend
love's rarer even than
touching the sky
reaching the end
again again

and she won't go away
she just fades
open or closed
open, oh
there is no mystery
open or closed
open, oh
there is no mystery
open, oh
there is no mystery
open or closed
open, oh
there is no mystery
