11. THE LABYRINTH SONG

 

Evening rises, darkness threatens to engulf us all

But there's a moon above it's shining and I think I hear a call

It's just a whisper through the trees, my ears can hardly make it out

But I can hear it in my heart, vibrating strong as if she shouts

 

Oh Ariadne, I am coming, I just need to work this maze inside my head

I came here like you asked, I killed the beast, that part of me is dead

Oh Ariadne, I just need to work this maze inside my head

If only I'd have listened to you when you offered me that thread

 

Everything is quiet and I'm not exactly sure

If it really was your voice I heard or maybe it's a door

That's closing up some hero's back, on his track to be a man

Can it be that all us heroes have a path but not a plan?

 

Oh Ariadne, I'm coming, I just need to work this maze inside my mind

I wish I had that string, it's so damn dark, I think I'm going blind

Oh Ariadne, I just need to work this maze inside my mind

For the life of me I don't remember what I came to find

 

Now tell me princess are you strolling through your sacred grove?

And is the moon still shining? You're the only thing I'm thinking of

The sword you gave me, it was heavy, I just had to lay it down

It's funny how defenseless I can feel here when there's nobody around

 

Oh Ariadne, I'm coming, I just need to work this maze inside my heart

I was blind, I thought you'd bind me, but you offered me a chart

Oh Ariadne, I just need to work this maze inside my heart

If I'd known that you could guide me, I'd have listened from the start

 

Somewhere up there there midnight strikes, I think I hear the fall

Of little drops of water, magnified against the barren wall

It's more a feeling than a substance, but there's nobody around

And when I'm in here all alone, it's just enough to let me drown

 

Oh Ariadne, I was coming, but I failed you in this labyrinth of my past

Oh Ariadne, let me sing you, and we'll make each other last

Oh Ariadne, I have failed you in this labyrinth of my past

Oh Ariadne, let me sing you, and we'll make each other last
