The key to this place
Is a cold you know
The real dispelled
Into the world you know
Doubt, tasted, you fall in
Down you sink
Into her deep devour

She's still the key holder
And through this portal
She courts you now

Endowed with will
And a course your own
Bound by the despair
Of the shoreless hours
Heed this flame
Within the walled empire
This desire
Is all around

She's still the key holder
And through this portal
She courts you now

If love be revealed
In the spart of an eye
Could all be redeemed
In the sea of time
If the stars embed
Like nails into the ground
From the unheard prayers
That have torn up the skies
Would you will it away
As you sail on your way

    General CommentI think this song really captures the haunting tone of the story itself. It's wonderfully done, bringing Coraline to life in song. One of the better of the three Coraline songs on the album.
