I thank you for the shadows —
it takes two or three to make company.
I thank you for the lightning that shoots up
and sparkles in the rain.
we’ll be together for a very long time.
some of them say that our hearts will
Beat like the wheels of a fast train
all around the world.
Lyrics from “Book of Brilliant Things” by Simple Minds, 1984.
