lyrics

Now cast away and lost at sea
Upon the waves of uncertainty
With shipwrecked heart and shipwrecked mind
Temptation sailing close behind
I lock myself up to the mast
Deny the solitude of the past
But when the mist come rolling in
I hear the Sirens start to sing

And now I hear the many tales
Of those before who've tried and failed
The endless quest for something pure
But where it lies they're not so sure
With scars as proof of what they say
They spoke of dangers on the way
Of those who practice to deceive
With smiles that helped them to believe

But could there be someone
To lead me from oblivion?
I lie awake beneath the stars
Just trying to work out who we are
Now that I can't see the shore
I can't feel things any more
And so I won't release the locks
And end up lying on the rocks
I won't end up broken on the rocks

In a scene of deepest clarity
She sailed right in from 'cross the sea
And took me firmly by the hand
And pointed me towards the land
With lips that spoke of something pure
She drove my mind towards the shore
And let me dream of what could be
With songs from far across the sea

And could you be someone
To save me from oblivion
Light my way beneath the stars
Take me home and heal the scars?
If I can't see the shore
I can't feel things any more
So help me cast away the locks
And lead me safely across the rocks
Don't leave me broken on the rocks
