The Visit
T. Rex Lyrics


My eyes went up
It was sunrise
The sky turned black
It was noon

A ship of the silverest
Metal
Shadowed out
All of the moon

A shape
That was golden and crimson
Extend a claw
To my frame

I sunk in the sand
Like an infant
I screamed
But my tongue was lame

My heart on a platter
They`d stolen
My eyes
Were all fiery flame

A sound like sweet dove
I did stutter
And then the ship
Swum the skies again

[Verse 1]
My eyes went up, it was sunrise
The sky turned black, it was noon
A ship of the silverest metal
Shadowed out all of the moon

[Chorus]
Truly I do love you
Truly I do love you

[Verse 2]
A shape that was golden and crimson
Extend a claw to my frame
I sunk in the sand like an infant
I screamed but my tongue was lame

[Chorus]
Truly I do love you
Truly I do love you

[Verse 3]
My heart on a platter they'd stolen
My eyes were all fiery flame
A sound like sweet dove, I stuttered
And then the ship swum the skies again

[Chorus] 2x
Truly I do love you
Truly I do love you

Anne Sidderley

Another great song

Roger Edgerton

This is among his true acoustic classics. Covered exceptionally well, imo, by Richard Barone.
