I Can't Stay Long Lyrics

Artist: Ultravox
Album: Systems of Romance

I can feel the turning of the tides
Pulling away the night
Like a sheet from over me

In summer time
I dissolve to a beach
And everywhere seems to be
Just a flicker on a silent screen

Because I
I can't stay long
Let the sky roll on
Just a flicker and the crowd moves on

In winter
Overcoats close in
And the snow tastes of tin
On the steps of any station

I'd like to glide in the long green light
Of a July afternoon
Sliding down a vague conversation

Because I
I can't stay long
When the moment comes
Just a glance and the glance is gone

Watch closely
As a man with a hat
And a girl with a map
Synchronise with the track
And they go away

I need to drift through all the walls
And let the scenery dissolve
Into some other life

Because I
I can't stay long
Let the sky roll on
Just a glance and the glance is gone

I
I can't stay long
When the right time comes
I'll dissolve
