Heavy thoughts tonight,
It's a one way flight,
A broken circle with a closing door.

Who unleashed the fire?
Clowns lead the choir
And we're all singing from a different score.

But looking in your eyes,
Swore I could see the light,
And I've been waiting for another spin.

We're breathing out love,
Can it be enough?
Can we reignite the flow of things?

You said the waves would never come down on us,
But now the ice is melting and I'm tied to the rocks.

We've Been Here Before, I know.
Every time I let you go.
So don't you run away again,
Don't you run.

Before the walls start crumbling down.
Before the world stops spinning round.
The Buda Hills still sing to me
A promise of eternity.

We've Been Here Before, I know.
Every time, I let you go.
So don't you run away again.

Tie me to the wheel of things,
I need to find the golden one.
Beginning to feel as though,
The engine's stopped and it won't run.

This mess we're in, where to begin?
You held the keys to everything.
Now I need a sign, give me a sign,
Give me a sign, give me a sign.
