Fragments of cloud, I lose my way

 

.

Have I misunderstood the lyrics for “Systems of Romance” all these years?  If so, I like my version better.

Systems of romance

Echoes of pleasure

A shiver in the dark when you call my name

Sudden horizons

Open and close between us

Touching me briefly with a healing grace

Patterns of longing

Figures down echo causeways

Across the wild seas we spin away

Time and again

Systems of romance

Systems of romance

Oh meet me and change me

In rooms that go sailing

Voices will name you as you move away

Lakeland in silver

Blazing away behind you

Rapids of cloud I lose my way

Time and again

Endless horizons

Hopes are our empires now

Crossing all codings engaged in the timeless dance

Systems of romance

Systems of romance

And here’s a review of the album Metamatic which I liked.  And another discussion of Metamatic from this beautiful John Foxx  fan site.

  1. Systematic and compartmentalized -not sure if that kind of romanticism would turn my crank all that much. But romance as timeless dance, now that would be dreamy. I wonder if it is out there?
