lyrics

I see you on the edge of falling
down into the desolate well
of long-lost wishes

you say there's a dark star above you
but in my eyes you shine and burn like a candle

how long will you float in limbo
hoping no one will see
the depth of your sorrow ?

I love you and my dreams are filled
with your faint smile and your words
like distant echoes

the world is blind to your beauty
I know the way this story goes

you're the man in the shade singing your song
softly and low

but I'm listening

always on a journey to places
far beyond anyone's reach
it's your curse and your blessing

you've wandered for so long in mazes
and I'm afraid of losing you
to the devil's embraces

you're swimming in a sea of white noise
so lonely among the crowd
and their hollow voices

the world is blind to your beauty
I know the way this story goes

you're the man in the shade singing your song
softly and low

but I'm listening
