Pain unlike pleasure
Wears no mask
(What about trust?)
Its funny you should ask
The foes inside me crave to love you
But I prefer to close my eyes
(Here I come)
And I turn out to be the one
That can go on

You just have to be mine
I love you
And I have proof
(I dream alone)
Into the body of this boat

Take this ray of light
Veil the moon and hold the tide
Calm the wind you might
Control the sea

If you save my life
We will rise and shine so bright
That the stars go blind
And leave
Leave the sky

You're the world I want to live in
Can I exist in you
(Oh you want proof?)
If we allow our souls to fly
We could meet in the sky
You go your way
I'll cross the line
From to time
(You're the fire that burns me)
(The ice that cracks beneath me)

Take this ray of light
Veil the moon and hold the tide
Calm the wind you might
Control the sea

If you save my life
We will rise and shine so bright
That the stars go blind
And leave (the sky)
That the stars go blind
And leave
Leave the sky

    General CommentAccording to the lyric book that comes with the cd, the lyrics are actually:

    Pain unlike pleasure
    Wears no mask
    What about trust?
    It's funny you should ask

    A force inside me craved
    To love you
    But I prefered to close my eyes
    And now you're gone
    And I turn out to be the one
    That can't go on

    You just have to be mine
    I love you
    And I have proof
    I drilled a hole
    Into the body of this boat

    Take this ray of light
    Veil the moon and hold the tide
    Calm the wind - you might
    Control the sea

    If you save my life
    We will rise
    And shine so bright
    That the stars will go blind
    And leave
    Leave the sky

    You're the world I want to live in
    Can I exist in you?
    Oh, you want proof
    Another shipwreck to amuse you?

    If we allow our souls to fly
    We could meet in the sky
    You go your way
    I'll cross your line
    From time to time

    Are you the fire that burns me?
    The ice that cracks beneath me?

    General CommentI agree with LaLaLogics lyrics, they should be fixed...

    I think this song is about regret of letting someone who loved you pass you by. It's saying if you come back and give me another chance...we will rise...and shine so bright...etc. etc. Then he is asking how can he prove that he means what he says? Pleading

    General Comment"Pain, unlike pleasure, wears no mask" is a line from Oscar Wilde's De Profundis. I think the complete paragraph it appears in gives some insight into the song. It goes:

    "Behind joy and laughter there may be a temperament, coarse, hard and callous. But behind sorrow there is always sorrow. Pain, unlike pleasure, wears no mask. Truth in art is not any correspondence between the essential idea and the accidental existence; it is not the resemblance of shape to shadow, or of the form mirrored in the crystal to the form itself; it is no echo coming from a hollow hill, any more than it is a silver well of water in the valley that shows the moon to the moon and Narcissus to Narcissus. Truth in art is the unity of a thing with itself: the outward rendered expressive of the inward: the soul made incarnate: the body instinct with spirit. For this reason there is no truth comparable to sorrow. There are times when sorrow seems to me to be the only truth. Other things may be illusions of the eye or the appetite, made to blind the one and cloy the other, but out of sorrow have the worlds been built, and at the birth of a child or a star there is pain."
