lyrics

You hear a voice that brings you relief,
It echoes through misery so deep.
What you have is not what you need,
It’s love that has brought you this far....
Believe me by now I don't care where you've been
Oh please, come be mine.
I'm waiting for you to go turn back the tide,
The forces of uncertainty must die.
Tearing eyes, paralyzed
Standing here alone
What can I say that could bring you back?
What do you think you’ll prove?

This is not my land don't you see
This son of yours can't wait I must leave
My ways, I know are all that I need,
My treasure now I'll take afar

Spend it on pleasures that my eyes have seen
You'll see, I am mine
I've wanted to have it all right by my side

When you're alone and the weight of your world overcomes you, and your endless need
You're not a stranger! No, you deserve better- I’ll wait, patiently
Tearing eyes, paralyzed; as the damned wait for paradise
You believe you'll survive, how can I?
Seven days, I lay awake, not to dream your bitter fate
Seven candles at the gate show the way

Father, your obsession’s unreal; that daring dog deserves to be dead!
You gave him all! His fall was his call! I stood beside you instead
The neighbours mock, our servants laugh; won’t you just let it go?
Believe me by now I don't care where you've been
Oh please, come be mine!
Still waiting for you to go turn back the tide…

You're not a stranger! No, you deserve better- I’ll wait, patiently
Tearing eyes, paralyzed; as the damned wait for paradise
You believe you'll survive
You and I realize, on the day we reunite
What was dead, once lost, will be alive!
