Track Title: I Was Brought To My Senses Album Title: Mercury Falling Prime Artist: Sting (Gordon Sumner) Producer: Hugh Padgham Producer: Sting (Gordon Sumner) Written by: Sting (Gordon Sumner) Lyrics: Alone with my thoughts this evening I walked on the banks of Tyne. I wondered how I could win you of if I could make you mine, or if I could make you mine. The wind it was so insistent with tales of a stormy south, but when I spied two birds in a sycamore tree, there came a dryness in my mouth, came a dryness in my mouth. For then without rhyme or reason the two birds did rise up to fly. And where the two birds were flying, I swear I saw you and I, I swear I saw you and I. I walked out this morning, it was like a veil had been removed from before my eyes, for the first time I saw the work of heaven in the line where the hills had been married to the sky. And all around me every blade of singing grass was calling out your name and that our love would always last. And inside every turning leave is the pattern of an older tree, the shape of our future, the shape of all our history. And out of the confusion where the river meets the sea came things I'd never seen, things I'd never seen. I was brought to my senses, I was blind but now that I can see every signpost in nature said you belong to me. I know it's true, it's written in a sky as blue as blue as your eyes, as blue as your eyes. If nature's red in tooth and claw like winter's freeze and summer's thaw, the wounds she gave me were the wounds that would heal me. And we'd be like the moon and sun, and when our courtly dance had run it's course across the sky, then together we would lie. And out of the confusion where the river meets the sea something new would arrive, something better would arrive. I was brought to my senses, I was blind but now that I can see every signpost in nature said you belong to me.
