How could he know
This new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?

Set sail to sea
But pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure

Was he the one causing pain
With his careless dreaming?
Been afraid
Always afraid
Of the things he's feeling

He could just be gone
He would just sail on
He'll just sail on

How can I belong,
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shuffled streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost?
When my ship was made to drift
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

His days drift on
Inside his fog
It's thick and suffocating

This sinking life
Outside it's hell
Inside, intoxicating

Ship's run aground
Like his life
The water's much too shallow

He goes down
Down with his ship
Sinking in the shadows

Now a castaway
They've all gone away
All gone away

How can I belong,
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shuffled streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost?
When my ship was made to drift
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me
Why can't I forgive me?

(Solo)

Set sail to sea
But pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure

How could he know
This new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?

How can I belong,
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shuffled streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost?
When my ship was made to drift
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

    My Opinionwe hear the sad intro like someone looking to the past and cry over it

    unlike Unforgiven 1 2 , it was strong intro

    i think he is talking about himself


    Was he the one causing pain
    With his careless dreaming?
    Been afraid
    Always afraid
    Of the things he's feeling


    This is a new one he is changing the point of view Unforgiven one about he is Unforgiven and it was out of his hand
    Unforgiven 2 he turn it to her , in the same time about himself like he said : so WTF


    but in 3
    How can I be lost?
    When my ship was made to drift
    And how can I blame you
    When it's me I can't forgive?


    he can’t forgive himself , he knew that the ship is made to drift but he didn’t care :

    Was he the one causing pain
    With his careless dreaming?


    because there others hurt because of his selfish dreams


    Ship's run aground
    Like his life
    The water's much too shallow

    He goes down
    Down with his ship
    Sinking in the shadows
