If your love is marred by anger
perhaps it wears a mask
and underneath those hollow eyes
a prisoner is cast
but grief will buy you nothing
and pity a little less
open up the cage you carry and release yourself from this

once we have a promise
twice we have a curse
three times is impossible
and four times even worse
once we have an accident
twice we have a fault
three times is delinquent
and four times is the fall

I will stay here
if you believe
I will remain
if you believe

If time and tide refuse to wait
remind them who they are
each second drained from the hour-glass
is born a distant star

and sorrow is not reaching out
its only lying in your heart
so if you're sailing in unhappy seas
bid the storms depart
but grief will buy you nothing
and pity a little less
open up the cage you carry and release yourself from this

once we have a promise
twice we have a curse
three times is impossible
and four times even worse
once we have an accident
twice we have a fault
three times is delinquent
and four times is the fall

I will stay here
if you believe
I will remain
if you believe

when I sleep I dream in billions of colors...
billions of colors, am I not real?

If time and tide refuse to wait
remind them who they are
each second drained from the hour-glass
is born a distant star

when birds are bent in windy skies
the foolish ones will land
live each moment with a savored taste
look beyond the mind of man
but grief will buy you nothing
and pity a little less
open up the cage you carry and release yourself from this

    General CommentI /love/ this song... so, so much.

    This song makes me feel as if it is about some sor of relationship, the once we have, twice we have... reminding me of stages of a relationship... at least that's what I think.
