The stars, they sink in the oceans of ink
Long black ribbons of cars
And in the taxi you ask me how I'm doing
But you already know

Beyond, beyond is not through
It's only a reflection of you
And something's at the window
It motions with its fingers, calling me beyond

The sadness is mine
The sadness is mine
It's why you're not helping me
And whatever has come for me

Oh, I can give you whatever you're wanting
Just take it and spare me, spare me please
Oh, tell me this is only a warning, no
Please have mercy, let me go

If only a day to let her know
Without her love I'm nothing at all
The change is happening and I'm almost gone
In her heart is my faith and it wins against the sadness

The train, it moves through the desert
The horses, they will challenge its stride
And into the boxcar she leaps
And is my hero and penetrates the demons inside

The clouds, they pass
But they're moving so fast, I watch them collide
Collide and collapse in her arms like a newborn child
And I am at once reborn

The sadness is mine
The sadness is mine
It's why you're not helping me
And whatever has come for me

Oh, I can give you whatever you're wanting
Just take it and spare me, spare me please
Oh, tell me this is only a warning, no
Please have mercy, let me go

If only a day to let her know
Without her love I was nothing at all
The change is happening and I'm almost gone
In her heart is my faith and it wins against the sadness

The frog in the moat, as he grabs my throat
It lifts as she comes
She opens her cloak and it's the color of the blood
And it's the sign of what now must come

Deny, deny me my destiny
I am not ready to go
I am the horror that brings us to the morning
Where I will have to stand and fight God

The sadness is mine
The sadness is mine
It's why you're not helping me
And whatever has come for me

Oh, I can give you whatever you're wanting
Just take it and spare me, spare me please
Oh, tell me this is only a warning, no
Please have mercy, let me go

If only a day to let her know
Without her love it's nothing at all
The change is happening and I'm almost gone
In her heart is my faith and it wins against the sadness
