Eden

hey can you hear me?
nights are falling in
and all the light is dragging
shadows round me

hey can you see me?
in dreams I hold you well
the dawn can break
take more than that to wake me up

Eden take the two of us and all the world

leaving is easy
at closing time you turn around
and you’re the best
the circle I’m circumf’rencing

Eden take the two of us and all the world

de-de-de-der-de-de
de-de-de-der-de-de [etc.]

don’t even think tomorrow is another day

Eden take the two of us and all the world

de-de-de-der-de-de
de-de-de-der-de-de [etc.]

explanations
as Eddi’s lead vocal is double-tracked throughout this recording, I haven’t marked everything green for ‘backing vocals’; there are only a few places, near the end, when the two vocal tracks diverge in notes or timing, otherwise they are just providing a thicker texture to the track
