Lyrics

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
Though I patiently waited, bedside, for the death of today.
I can't see your star
The mechanical lights of Lisbon,
Frightened it away.

And I'm alone now,
Me and all I stood for.
We're wandering now.
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely, find your own way out.

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
How can the darkness feel so wrong?

And I'm alone now,
Me and all I stood for.
We're wandering now.
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely, find your own way out.

So far away.
It's growing colder without your love.
Why can't you feel me calling your name?
Can't break the silence,
It's breaking me.

[Alma surda, loucura] All my fears [onde está sua alma?]
[Loucura, toda sozinha] Turn to rage

And I'm alone now,
Me and all I stood for.
We're wandering now.
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely, find your own way out.

Now, I have nothing worth fighting for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely,
find your own way out.
