A Certain Slant Of Light Lyrics

by David Sylvian

There's a certain Slant of light,
Winter Afternoons –
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes –
[ Lyrics from: http://www.cloverlyrics.com/e72549-david_sylvian~a_certain_slant_of_light_lyrics.html ]
Heavenly Hurt, it gives us –
We can find no scar,
But internal difference,
Where the Meanings, are –

None may teach it – Any –
'Tis the Seal Despair –
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air –

When it comes, the Landscape listens –
Shadows – hold their breath –
When it goes, 'tis like the Distance
On the look of Death –

David Sylvian
