Labyrinth
Bella Hardy

From shore to shore 'cross all terrain
Five hundred times round this house and back again
Through hours and days and joy and shame
In hearts pure love and times cruel pain

We walked that single winding road
Two joined as one to share the load
To keep the dead men off our backs
To catch the spirits in these spiral traps

I tied you with a silent clue
I clung on tight and saw it through
Oh darling I loved only you
I lost you in the labyrinth
I lost you in the labyrinth

Just when we thought we were reaching the end
We found ourselves back at the start again
This slow turning progress just lets you begin
There's no ending to this place we're in
And I lost you in the Labyrinth

From here to there so preordained
Five hundred times round my mind and back again
Through months and years and all in vain
I lost you in the labyrinth

Seven for the seven stars in the sky
Seven for the seven stars in the sky
Seven for the seven stars in the sky
Seven for the seven stars in the sky

I should have let you walk alone
My Theseus through the Tavros throne
Now I'm left here on this Island on my own
I lost you in the Labyrinth

And all that time we wondered
I was watching you leave
