The Labyrinth Song

(placeholder)

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'm 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 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 am 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 that 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 am 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 midnight strikes

I think I hear the fall of little drops of water

Magnified against the barren wall

Its 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
