I hold you in
A sea of silence
On the borderline of truth
Open violence
I see no sign
I see no place I've loved
Depending on the signs
To fine the road

Blackwater take me with you
To the place that I have spoken
Come lead me through the darkness
To the light that I long to see again

I walk with you
But sleep beside her
The summer came and went
It passes us over

I see her cry
I see the face I have loved
Depending on the blind
To find the road

Blackwater take me with you
To the place that I have spoken
Come lead me through the morning
For the land that I long to see again
