And in the element of light The sun reflected from the waves Inshore it spangles The child of air is borne upon the wind That blows across the sea And in the element of summer The cliffs suspended in the heat The air in columns The tiny figures of the world are walking Underneath your feet And underneath your hair Where angels wander I'll wander too Where angels wander, over you And in the element of darkness The starlight shimmers on the spray And falls towards you Your perfect lover's never there And if she was, she wouldn't be And neither, though, would you Save your illusions For someone else Save your illusions For yourself Element And in the element of laughter The quick explosion and the slow Release of heat, you The tide recedes upon the bones of Something beautiful and drowned In coral and in jade Where angels hover I'll hover too Where angels hover, over you Over you Over you
