Mystified, Heavy Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Ooh, it's got me mystified, heavy now
Deep down to my soul
You try to keep the wheel steady now
Easy as she goes

I can hear on the wind
A tale that needs to be told again
The horizon bends at either end
And the sea can't tell a foe from a friend

I know it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing

I was never satisfied with any life
Till she called my name
The air on the high ground was rarefied
Every day the same

And old fears were always near
But when we set sail they disappeared
There are those who fear the deep
But the world don't wait when your faith won't leap

And I know it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing

Then we watched as the southern cross
Led the sailors home, constellation borne
We set sail in a heavy gale
And to the sea many of us thrown

And there were times when my courage failed
But I never bowed to the storm
Whatever path you choose to walk
In the end you walk alone

Ooh, it's got me mystified, heavy now
Tongue-tied to the anchor chain
You try to keep your hand steady now
But it slips again

And landfall surprised us all
And she broke on the rocks like a china doll
You can hear the siren call
For the last dance at Poseidon's ball

And I know it was only a dream
As delicate a dragonfly wing
I hope it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing
