Oh Blinding, now I see 
I could not hold you 
My orange tree lived in the darkened room 
From three words to share 

Maybe you were free before 
My blackened wing covered you 
I took the sing from your song 
I made a bed where you don't belong 

Call me she fell beneath the
Wheels to help me up 
Black sea, I failed to be a light 
You found alone 

Call me hold me she fell 
Beneath the wheels to help me up 
Black Sea, the monster 
Killed the melody of love

And now I'm going places on my own 

Blinded, now I see the death
Moves amongst us and 
With such ease surround us 
These silent beasts so hard to bare 

Lonely, oh no not me 
I have a grave to dig fast 
Moving feet you gave me 
Light where it once was gone 
I made a bed, where we don't belong

Call me she fell beneath the
Wheels to help me up 
Black sea, I failed to be a light 
You found alone 

Call me hold me she fell 
Beneath the wheels to help me up 
Black Sea, the monster 
Killed the melody of love

And now I'm going places on my own
