lyrics

I dreamed all your dreams
As a young man
Now I’ve deleted those scenes
I don’t understand
Why you would choose
To model the role
Of the powerful king
Who gives up control

This city is mine
This city is mine
To hide behind

The winter is here
The dark quiet nights
And in them the fear
That one day you might
Break through the defences
That border my land
And pull out my tongue
And cut off my hands

This city is mine
This city is mine
To hide behind

When you come to meet me
All dressed in white
Your eye on the sparrow
Your eyes filled with light
Will you wrap your arms
Round my loveless bones
My vision fuelled heart
That’s turned into stone

This city is mine
This vision
This kingdom
This love
