Lyrics:
Slow motion in the quiet of your room:
so potent is the smell of her perfume
that
you think she's eternal
that you think she's everything
-but no-one knows what she
is....
Repentance for all you should have said-
her entrance seems to raise you from the
dead
and you think she's really with you
and you think she'll always stay.
always
ready to forgive you,
always ready to grant you her mercy
-but in her own
way.
When she comes she'll be a stranger;
struck dumb you'll try to protest
as the
drum beats out the danger,
too late-you should have noticed
that the lady with her skin so
white
like something out of Blake or Burne-Jones
always blocked out the light
and
shadowed all you owned.

Still you think she's forever,
yesterday and
tomorrow
-but no-one knows where she is.
Still you swear that you can win her
and
your prayer is that she'll want you;
aware, once a saint, now you're a sinner
and your
sins are going to haunt you
when the lady with her skin so white
like something out of
Edgar Allen Poe
holds your hand so tight
and you hope that she'll never let
go.

Easy targets, easy cross-words, easy life:
these key margins leave you balanced
on the knife,
bleeding darkly. In the end it all comes down
to sleazy bargains.
That
hidden key-you tried so hard to find it:
all you can concieve is the effort to be
worthy.
Even now you need to be reminded
that La Belle Dame is without mercy.
The
lady with her skin so white
-you never did quite catch her name-
now she holds you in the
night
and she'll never let go again
she'll never let go again
