Lyrics to "The Body" Breathe [Waters] Breathe in the air Make for the meadow and savour the grass while it lasts By and by Spidery fingers of industry reach for the sky Brick upon brick, stone upon stone they grow Choking the atmosphere, oh, so incredibly slowly Sulphur and carbon and hydrogen sulphide and lime Fever, corrosion and cover your cities with grime Something is killing the land before your eyes And the sunshine Is not to blame Could be the insane, inhuman games we play Day by day River and fool ??? (Rushing) home in a crowd, I'm alone Close your eyes, lie still You are a mountain stream and I am a hill Far, far away There is a field of blossom and bees and new mown hay Breathe in the air Breathe in the air Breathe in the air Breathe in the air ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Chain of Life [Waters] Cry, Baby, cry Grow, Baby, grow Stand on your own Holidays and happy days at home Seaside, bike ride, fun land, hot sand, childhood floating by Wonder why I feel so shy when you are passing by The years of love and wine Pass by the magic eye Good time, lifetime Good line, lifeline Pass by the magic eye Your child is growing fast His future is your past Good time, lifetime Good line, lifeline His future is your past Slow down, look around Memories come drifting down Good time, lifetime Good line, lifeline Memories come drifting down And I remember rather well Gather round my chair and I will tell Carriages were open to the breeze Muffin boys and trams and trees I recall when I was younger, world was not so small ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Give Birth to a Smile [Waters] Long live the child and the man Long live the mother and the lad The hills behind us and the sea Reach out to welcome you and me Valley deep and mountain tall Lie upon the ground before us all Strange are the colours of the turf Heralding the rebirth of the earth Gather all your energy and try Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile, everytime you think about it Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile, hear me tellin' you Give birth to a smile, give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile, give birth, give birth Give birth to a smile Give birth to a smile, every day of your life Give birth to a smile, give a little birth to a smile Give birth to a smile ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Sea Shell and Stone [Waters] Sea shell and stone Surf rushes forward to feel the shingle with fingers of foam Search for the gold Over the landscape the mouth of a lifeline unfolds Smooth and round and brown See how the sunshine creeps over thistle and down Hillock and hump, hummock and clump and mound I feel a lump, see a bump, hear a bulboba sound Hollow and valley and shadow and dimple and hill Glisten and glimmer and shimmer and sparkle and still Sunlight is warming the land before your eyes And the sunrise is on your side And the sunshine is on your thighs Lady of stone, you are alone Lady of stone, you are alone ----------------------------------------------------------------------
