Swimming in clear water pools
The noise of the falls and the moon shining down
On the backs of the horses
Cut through by the lovers' voices

She hungered for the answers
She turned over every stone
But for all that she uncovered
She still stood miles from home

Oh the demons never sleep
Oh you try to figure out what to keep
Oh but you need nothing save release

Fires still raging for the loss
Of a love cut so unkindly short
A life so unfairly taken
The souls torn apart

He told he'd seen her portrait
Still set out on a table
But she knew it could not be true
She never was the returning angel


Who was more afraid of the truth
Who more enslaved to their heart
Who was more sorry to surrender
Who more resigned to the dark

Who was more in danger of falling
Who more certain to cry
Who was more sure to suffer
Who more afraid to die
