Nocturne

A song for the baby in your womb
A song for your body in the tomb
A song for the dreams woven in your room
Come true soon,

Never let you come to any harm
Never take your future from my arms
I’ll never let what we had turn bad
Or let you be sad

Sometimes I dream that we die young
Spend eternity beneath the summer sun
Spend the summers barefoot,
Fly away for good

The moonlight is playing with my heart
Hopes and dreams are streaming upwards
The ephemeral beauty of transient days
We’ll fly away

Sometimes I dream that we die young
Spend eternity beneath the summer sun
Spend the summers barefoot,
Fly away for good

Song Notes

When talking about some of the favourite tracks he’d written Tim mentioned the song, adding:

I’ve got to give a shout out to one of our B-sides because I think there were some gems amongst them. In the 90s we had to record four B-sides for each single and sometimes that was a nightmare – but it also gave us a chance to have fun and experiment a lot. I think this is a really sweet one.
