lyrics

[kat]
I remember the image of her in the mirror behind me,
“you look like me,” she said,
and so it seemed.

hand on my shoulder, love was clear,
when she whispered in my ear:
“don’t ever let someone tell you your way of life ain’t free.”

[halcionne]
I live in a land where what you don’t understand is potent,
there’s rich and poor,
love and war,
and I’m always somewhere in between.

don’t underestimate my sight,
if you won’t look me in the eyes,
be sure they see everything.

I’ve seen lovers love and lovers burn to ash,
and it seems when I go farther you digress,
and to the end of the world remain parallel lines,
a mystery, stuck in time,
a girl is thwarted in her prime.

[kat]
and I’m holding a gold key,
that opens up to everything I see,
you and me, us and them.
they push me away for who I am,
never once inquiring about what’s occurring in me.

[halcionne]
and I remember the image of a woman crying,
she looked at me and said, “you could be so pretty.”
and in a moment it was clear,
when I whispered in her ear:
“the beauty in me is more than you can think to see.”

[kat]
and I remember the image of a father and son,
the boy asleep inside his arms, on his mother’s side.
his father kissed him on the head,
as he whispered in their bed,
“I’ve got you, boy, and you need never fear harm.”

[both]
and I’ve seen lovers see their lovers turn to ash,
and stood by brokenly as they regressed,
and to the end of their life they remain in silent respect,
their beauty fades, their children grow,
and suddenly you’re all alone
in a foreign country.

and I’m holding a gold key,
that opens up to everything I see,
you and me, us and them.
they push me away for who I am,
never once inquiring about what’s occurring in me.

and I have so much to say,
to those unknowingly led astray,
knowledge heals; yes it may
hurt sometimes, but there’s no other way.

I know the world can be too much at times,
but I look to you and you’ll be shining.
