I sat in my armchair
and listened politely
as you tried to invite me
but the answer was no
and the distance between us
can never be crossed now
and I'm calling out for you
but they won't let me go
they won't let me go

The people around you
a crowd without number
all beautifully singing
and dressed up like snow
Can noone believe me
with one drop of water
I'm calling out for you
but they won't let me go
they won't let me go

And I'm crawling for the table
melting like snow
and they won't let me go

I wish I could drown down here in this ocean of light
I wish I could close my ears to the chorus of Christ
I wish I was blind
but I can't close my eyes
I can't close my eyes

The fire is freezing
it burns without breathing
I'm down in the darkness
where nothing can grow
eternally knowing
I've chosen to be here
I'm calling out for you
but they won't let me go
they won't let me go

And I'm crawling for the table
melting like snow
and they won't let me go
they won't let me go
