lyrics

I, I've been led astray
By this lonely heart of mine
Compels me to say
That I'm leaving this life behind
But I don't wanna leave
On this lovely island breeze

Your heart to me is a labyrinth
Heart to me, a labyrinth
I will never explore

You, you came into this world
All twisted and unkind
Compelled me to say
That I'm leaving it all behind
But we're like tumbling leaves
As the wind whips through the trees

Your heart to me is a labyrinth
Heart to me, a labyrinth
I will never explore

I, I follow the ghosts
Of my futures as they die
Such wonderful goals
That I will never reach in time
Are you real or a dream?
Rushing down this mountain stream

Your heart to me is a labyrinth
Heart to me, a labyrinth
I will never explore

And if you ever lose your way
I won't be too far behind
We both have dreams
We mourn their deaths
Ambitions so entwined

Chase after what flies from you
Even if you lose your mind
Our helpless bodies plunge into
The swirling discs of time

A thousand souls won't cry for us
As we're drifting out to sea
Mermaids' songs will pull me down
Through the possibilities

I find myself upon the pile
Of broken wrecks of men
It won't be long before I'm back
To start it all again
