Five Minutes

lyrics

Chasing the beauty of a mayfly
i went searching for the woods
primitive is the new love
that I laid myself upon

And i saw the earth's shadow
cast upon the sky
come on he said let's travel
without learning how to fly

By the river bank I lost you
I never knew that you could swim
so far so fast so fleeting
five minutes and I again begin

And I saw the earth's shadow
cast upon the sky
you'll be gone before the sunset
but then alive and then begin

And now I am the mayfly
I can see you for a while
and you, you cannot catch me
five minutes and I again begin

And I saw the earth's shadow
and I saw the earth's shadow
