Phil Shöenfelt: Traitor's Eyes

TRAITOR'S EYES
/Phil Shöenfelt/

I never wanted you
The way that you wanted me to
In a wilderness
Of anger and dismay
And from myself concealed
To deny my own existence
Far away from you
Benaeth the dark and empty sky

And black as Gideon's bible
The night came thick and fast
And the flower of love
It died within me

Now I'm locked inside
These shadows of my own design
To those traitor's eyes
Still enmanacled and chained
And to myself betrayed
For one blind and passing moment
In a shining world
Lord, have mercy on my soul

And black as Gideon's bible
The night fell thick and vast
And the flower of love
It died within me

Now the stars they shine
While in this tangled net I twist and turn
Far away from you
Who all these secrets did unveil
And in a winding world
Behind the shadows of existence
Where I wait for you
Lord, have mercy on this soul

And black as Gideon's bible
The night came thick and fast
And the flower of love
It died within me
