Lyrics

Her russet hair cascades down,
An auburn crown on a queen,
She’s hoping for any knight to keep her safe,
She waits there.

Our hero peers through the gloom,
Amongst the clouds of desire,
Spies the Cirrus dancing close - her eyes aflame.

Dutch courage soaks through his mind,
He marches towards his prey,
She sees her knight nearing now to hold her near,
She waits there; waits for him.

Mountains all alone for life can still hold hands beneath the sea,
Can still embrace beneath the firmament,
She waits there; waits for him.

A soft smile touches her lips,
Her hair ebbs over her face,
She ties it back and gazes into his eyes.

His heart explodes at the sight,
He holds her close to himself,
And like a dream Eden bound their lips embrace,
So soft as marshmallow.

Mountains all alone for life can still hold hands beneath the sea,
Can still embrace beneath the firmament,
He holds her close to him.

She’s let her hair down, she’s let her hair down, she’s let her hair down,
From her tower of pride she’ll let him inside,
For a night of love,
She’s let her hair down, she’s let her hair down, she’s let her hair down,
For one knight of love.

Mountains all alone for life can still hold hands beneath the sea,
Can still embrace beneath the firmament,
Together through the night they’ll be.

This live version was performed at Prime's penultimate gig at Doc's, Southsea in January 1996. It marked the first gig as a four-piece with James joining.

The song was originally written for Math's behemoth project named We Cirri and a 'proper' version is in the pipeline.
