The last vestiges of the empire were crumbling
F#
Daisies were pushing through the ground
C#
And I saw a crane disappear beneath still water
F#
On the day when you came back around
C#                       F#
And though time remembers meaningless gestures
C#                       F#
Your goodness will not be forgotten while I am still alive
C#                       G#
It was the eighteenth day of May
F#          
In 1975


And I asked if you could last a week or two
And you said you thought you could
You came inside then with the light trickling behind you
It was fine and it was good
And so gleams the single moment before we heard the officers arrive
On the eighteenth day of May
In 1975
