Hunched fetal in the corner of my soul
My fingernails are bleeding
From climbing up the wall

This time you really hurt me right down to the core
And I'm desperately trying to find a reason
To forgive you for it all

I saw your life as a shadowplay
In a trance I was held by the shadowplay
In the spell of the shadowplay
From Celtic illumination
I see the Celtic illumination, the Celtic

I never realized just how far we'd gone
I turned around and all that I saw was distance
Through an anger that burned every time
That someone mentioned your name

I should have noticed, should have read the signs
We could have talked it out if there was a problem
It wasn't obvious then but then it isn't really obvious now

I saw your life as a shadowplay
In a trance I was held by the shadowplay
In the spell of the shadowplay
From Celtic illumination
I see the Celtic illumination, the Celtic

I could have changed I could have settled down
I could have been whatever you wanted me to be
If you gave me the chance
But it seems that it's too late for that now

I thought I knew you thought, we had it made
I'd thought it out, thought I had the answers
After all is said and done
The only thing I really know is your name

I sit and wait for the shadowplay
Let me in into the world of the shadowplay
I'll follow you to the shadowplay
Through Celtic illumination
Give me the Celtic illumination, illumination

Illumination, illumination, illumination, illumination, illumination
If I'd only had the patience, if I'd only had the time
If I'd only known the moment when you'd chosen to decide
If I'd only ever listened, if you'd only ever asked
If I'd known it was important, if I'd known it wouldn't last

Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay

Maybe if I'd noticed and maybe if I'd tried
Maybe if I'd worked at it, it never would have died
Maybe I was selfish, maybe I was blind
Maybe I was in the wrong and maybe you were right

Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay

Could I have been a better man, was I really all to blame?
Was it me that was the problem, was it me that dealt the pain?
Did you never mean to hurt me, did you only try to show
That you really, truly loved me that together we're alone?

Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay
Run to the magic of, the magic of the shadowplay

I see my life as a shadowplay
All around is the magic of shadowplay
In the world of the shadowplay is where I belong
Where all that I feared is how it is and will be

Ana all that was hidden now you will see
And all I could dream you'll find now is real
And all I could touch now you can feel
And the light that I follow is where the madness will end

Illumination, illumination
Illumination, illumination
Illumination, illumination

Shine on, shine on
Shine on, shine on, shine on
