Frosted evening safe inside, there were just we five
The Moon hung high reflecting light which lined the heavy skies
Words and music mingled with the scent of food and wine
And conversation turned back to images in time

Smoke hung like curtains all around us
We talked and thought in rhyme
And who knows for that one moment
Time stopped time, stopped within time

There were only five of us, we had no thought of time
We just watched the fire dance as only fire can
There was no-one over my shoulder, no-one to do me harm
I’m not ashamed to close my eyes and let the thoughts turn round

All around the whitewashed walls shadows climbed up and down
Just like in a nightmare they circled us around
All of us deep in laughter until we could laugh no more
And finally to watch the early morning sun

Now filled with uncertainty
We go with the time
Wishing we were back again
Wishing time to turn

There were only five of us, we had no thought of time
We just watched the fire dance as only fire can
There was no-one over my shoulder, no-one to do me harm
I’m not ashamed to close my eyes and let the thoughts turn round
