David Sylvian - Orpheus Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Standing firm on this stony ground
  • The wind blows hard
  • Pulls these clothes around
  • I harbour all the same worries as most
  • The temptations to leave or to give up the ghost
  • I wrestle with an outlook on life
  • That shifts between darkness and shadowy light
  • I struggle with words for fear that theyll hear
  • But orpheus sleeps on his back still dead to the world
  • Sunlight falls, my wings open wide
  • Theres a beauty here I cannot deny
  • And bottles that tumble and crash on the stairs
  • Are just so many people I knew never cared
  • Down below on the wreck of the ship
  • Are a stronghold of pleasures I couldnt regret
  • But the baggage is swallowed up by the tide
  • As orpheus keeps to his promise and stays by my side
  • Tell me, Ive still a lot to learn
  • Understand, these fires never stop
  • Believe me, when this joke is tired of laughing
  • I will hear the promise of my orpheus sing
  • Sleepers sleep as we row the boat
  • Just you the weather and I gave up hope
  • But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps
  • Were fuel for the fire and straw for our backs
  • Still the voices have stories to tell
  • Of the power struggles in heaven and hell
  • But we feel secure against such mighty dreams
  • As orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may bring
  • Tell me, Ive still a lot to learn
  • Understand, these fires never stop
  • Please believe, when this joke is tired of laughing
  • I will hear the promise of my orpheus sing
