lyrics

I've sometimes thought about giving this up
And thoughts like these can go one of two ways
Oh it seems that I am stuck
I'm not about to skip lightly away
(Not that I'd make out the doors were all shut)
But apparently I don't have much of a say

Not when it's there for all to see
(No you can't take this solace away from me)
It's all I can bear; it cuts to the core
(Night by night, fight or flight, could you ask for more?)
There's always an open sky, a silent look, a space for me to find
This air in my lungs, the blood in my heart, the tune on my tongue
Love, I've been overcome

There's something hidden I'm doing this for
A ghost in the fog; a Willo the Wisp*
Some place somewhere I once saw
I'll find it again, I know it exists
Just for a moment I'll be there once more
For a moment where everything's just as I wished

Strange enchantment all these open eyes

Now that it's there for all to see
No you can't take this solace away from me
It's all I can bear; it cuts to the core
Night by night, fight or flight, could you ask for more?
There's always an open sky, a silent look, a space for me to find
This air in my lungs, the blood in my heart, the tune on my tongue
Love, I've been overcome

Open sky, a silent look a space for me to find
Air in my lungs, blood in my heart, a tune on my tongue
Place to be, a will to fight, a win from behind
Another day, the wind in my sails, I'm not the only one
I'm not the only one
Love I've been overcome
Love I've been overcome
Love I've been overcome
