  • Dear arise and say it's a honey
    All this light that daybreak brings
    And the ancient bands that brung me
    To the bed where you're sleeping safe

    And we had agreed on Henry
    Long before a flutter felt
    And so it will be till memory
    Makes a shadow of ourselves

    And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
    All would lead to believe that it's not
    But it's foregone
    It's foregone

    Can it be that this is given
    This awaking from a long dark night
    Of a soul so on and wizened
    Sleep away to set to rights

    And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
    All would lead to believe that it's not
    But it's foregone
    It's foregone
    And it's foregone
    It's foregone

    And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
    All would lead to believe that it's not
    And the reach and the wrecks and the wrong
    It's foregone
    It's foregone
    It's foregone
    It's foregone

    Carry on
    Oh and carry on
