No Longer There Submit Correct Lyrics

I know you'd like to hear a song
that sings everything's alright
the temperature is warm
the fire horses sleep
so gently comes the night..
Now close your eyes and stare
the ground they're on is bare
but once it was as deep
and wild as giant's dreams

They're no longer there

And all of our desires
could mirror skies with flames
smoke out heaven's halls
who was that you called?

They're no longer there.

Here it goes again,
here it goes again,
here it goes again.

What would you leave behind when all your fields are dead?
When your territories are dried out and your cities drowned and swept?
What would you leave behind when those who bear your name are born to that place that you wrecked?

What would you leave behind when you're no longer there?

Would you sail to distant shores
and hide within the haze
softly close the door
pretend the world was saved
and wait for heaven's call?

Or would you turn and face the sea
and calm decide you care
There's chance but if you dare
and swift as honour's steeds
before it's no longer there

Here it goes again...

To deny or despair,
they're really just the same
and everything between
it means we have to change.
Cos when a one forgets
their world begins to fade
And all the shapes and shades
that made their colours see
well they suddenly turn grey

Then they're no longer there
