Gathering Mercury

(Colin Hay/Cecilia Noël)

Free falling floating through this dream
I could hear a strange calling from behind the scenes
I could not open my eyes I was barely alive
Is this all I’ve been and all I am and will be

Until I cross over
One life is all I can see
Until it’s all over
I’m gathering mercury

Free falling over an endless sea
I could feel my heart stalling getting harder to breathe
As the boat casts away should I go or stay
Is this all I’ve been and all I am and will be

Until I cross over
One life is all I can see
Until it’s all over
I’m gathering mercury

Free falling now I want to sing
I can hear my voice calling it will hear everything
I cut myself free I crawled back to see
All that has been and all there is and will be

Until I cross over
One life is all I can see
Until it’s all over
I’m gathering mercury

Until I cross over
One life is all I can see
Until it’s all over
I’m gathering mercury
I’m gathering mercury
