"Calliope!" as written by and Gerrard Liam Finn Andrews....
I woke this morning deep in the earth
Laying bare with the granite and the moths
Up, I clambered and I was met by the sun
It was then I saw you there, down on the street

My love
You've come such a long way
With no one to comfort you
Or to tell you you're needed

You and I come from the same place
But if I were to come for you
What's there left to believe in?

So I signaled up to the high and crumbling moon
We've made it then, my love
Closed both my eyes and crawled under the sink
And as I dreamt, I swear, I felt you in my arms again

You've come such a long way
With no one to comfort you
Or to tell you you're needed

You and I come from the same place
But if I were to come for you
What's there left to believe in?

You're all I have left to believe in

    General CommentGreat song, but this is missing a large chunk of lyrics:

    after the last chorus here it goes:

    What's there left to believe in
    What's there left to believe in

    And the whole way looking down
    Tore my heart and ripped my crown
    I've been falling for you
    I've been falling for you
    I've been falling for you, love
    What's there left to believe in?

    ---Then the chorus again.

    THEN: Do you still need me at all?
    You're all I've left to believe in.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that in the chorus, it's not "If I were to come for you" but "if I were to CALL for you"

    I love the veils.

    General CommentI love this song. I always assumed it was about someone inspiring him, since Calliope in greek mythology was a muse.

    General CommentCalliope is a main road in Devonport, New Zealand where the singer grew up. So its obviously about something relating to his past/childhood
