Never Return

Lay me down on a bed of blue ice,

Cover me with a blanket of snow;

I know I will never return

Home,

You can now call me your own

/

Sing to me in the voice of a storm,

Look at me with the eyes of a star;

I know I will never return

Home –

My wounds will not turn to scars;

/

Wash my sweat and blood off your face,

The face which is now also mine;

I know I will never return

Home,

I have been gone all my life;

/

It was you I’d been reaching for

It was me whom you chose to keep;

I know I will never return

Home –

The rocks below are too steep
