††††††††††††††††††††††† Blade of the Knife

I saw in a vision a glint of sharp steel in dead blazing eyes.

I tried to escape, but the ghost was unmoved by my frightened cries.

I made a wrong move as I ran for my life,

Reaching out for the handle, grasped the blade of the knife.

I canít bleed any more, I lay drained here alone under empty skies.

††† So Iíll run away to sea where rolling waves may comfort me.

††† Iíll run away to fight for king and country, god and right.

††† Iíll run away, give my mind and soul to worlds all new, but

††††† My heart will stay with you.

The eyes can play tricks in the cold leaden light of a wintry dawn.

They see what youíve lost, make you reach for a phantom, then find itís gone.

I gave up too much, but I saw that too late,

Made all the decisions, then blamed them on fate.

I canít bleed any more, and this blade is too sharp to keep holding on.

††† So Iíll run away to sea where rolling waves may comfort me.

††† Iíll run away to fight for king and country, god and right.

††† Iíll run away, give my mind and soul to worlds all new, but

††††† My heart will stay with you.

††††† My heart will stay with you.
