Drum beats guide me through the sky,
And I swear it hears them too.
Views burn brightly in my eyes
As I make my way to you.

Fires surround me, the wine flows free
As over these lands I roam.
Always I feel you here with me,
Though I'm a thousand miles from home.

There's only now,
There's only here.
I hope you won't learn how
This became so clear.

Your pain and sorrow can't help me.
They will not keep me warm.
All these things you think you see
Are just fury without form.

My love, they cannot win.
They're going to let us in.
We all will learn to dare
Like the girl with the lion's hair.
