Inspired by The Amber Spyglass / His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (2000) and the song

lyrics

< Here, here on this day
< I think of you fondly
< So far away

> Once, once long ago
> Our lives came together
> Together we grew

< You helped me through hell
< Now we're both doing well
< In our own separate places
< Parallel spaces

> I came to your side
> And learned from your pride
> You taught me so much
> Now you’re ‘cross the divide

<> Far, so far away
<> Apart from each other
<> A whole world away

< (Now we're)
<> Close, just on this day
<> Alone together
<> Is how things must stay

< Our paths once entwined
< Now are kept out of mind
< What brought us together
< Must never, no, never!

> I shattered the knife
> and got on with my life
< It would all end in dust!

> Just a knife-cut away,
> Is where we must stay
< We did what we must!

> Across the divide
<> You are sat at my side
<> The same empty park bench
<> Together alone

<> Yes we're here
<> Sharing this one longest day
<> Each in our own worlds
<> Where each of us stay
<> And we know
> Really it's better this
< Better this
<> Better this way

< (But you're)
<> Far, so far away
<> Apart from each other
<> A whole world away

< (Now we're)
<> Close, just on this day
<> Alone together
<> Is how things must stay

< Since we ended that day,
< I can't see the way
> So many I've healed!

< Though you're out of my reach,
< I still know how to teach
> Since the knife wounds were sealed!

< And I'll never forget you
> Oh never!
<> No never, no--

<> Far, so far away
<> Apart from each other
<> A whole world away

< (And we're)
<> Close just on this day--

> Since you showed me my spirit
> I'm never alone!

< --Alone together is how things must stay)

> The bond we both shared
> Has since been repaired

< You helped me through hell...
> (For as long as I live)

<> Now we're both doing well

> I shattered the knife...
< (As long as I live...)

<> I got on with my life!

< Alone together
> (As long as I live...)

> Together alone
< (As long as I live, I will come!)
