On the horizon of the gulls and plovers
She saw the outline of transparent lovers
In a hotel room underneath the covers
Who should I see but the transparent lovers
Why is she built that way I soon discovered
Try to embrace her your transparent lover
Try to belong to her you won't recover
See your reflected in your transparent lover

Gone lord, gone, gone
Fade boy, fade
Gone lord, gone, gone

Faintly above the cliffs they held each other
Wan as the angels, the transparent lovers
You're going to lose her like you lost your mother
But you'll remember your transparent lover
All men are killers or their killer's brothers
I'm going to die for my transparent lover

My transparent lover

Gone lord, gone, gone
Fade boy, fade
Gone lord, gone, gone

Summery phantom as she fade she hovers
I'm going to find her my transparent lover

My transparent lover
