The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows Lyrics

 

The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows Lyrics by Damon Albarn

 

You are gone

The dark journey that leaves no returning
It’s fruitless for me to mourn you
But who can help mourning?

To think of life that did laugh on your face
In the beautiful past left so desolate now
When youth seemed immortal
So sweet it did weave Heaven’s halo around you

Earth’s hope to deceive
You were the fairest and dearest
Where many were fair
To my heart you were nearest

The year has its winter
As well as it’s May
The sweetest leave us
And the fairest decay

The nearer the fountain, more pure the stream flows

To think of life that did laugh on your face
In the beautiful past left so desolate now
When youth seemed immortal
So sweet it did weave Heaven’s halo around you
Around you

Earth hopes to deceive
Around you
Around you

The nearer the fountain, more pure the stream flows
