  • Can you walk on the water if I, you and I?
    'Cause your blood's running cold outside the familiar true to life
    Can you walk on the water if I, you and I?
    Or keep your eyes on the road and live in the familiar without you and I
    It glows with gates of gold to true life

    And love is a ghost that the others can't see
    It's a danger
    Every shade of us you fade down to keep
    Them in the dark on who we are (oh what you do to me)
    Gonna be the death of me
    It's a danger
    'Cause our love is a ghost that the others can't see, oh

    Took a walk to the summit at night, you and I
    To burn a hole in the old grip of the familiar, you and I
    And the dark was opening wide, do or die
    Under a mask of a million ruling eyes

    Oh, I

    And our love is a ghost that the others can't see
    It's a danger
    Every shade of us you fade down to keep
    Them in the dark on who we are (oh what you do to me)
    Gonna be the death of me
    It's a danger
    'Cause our love is a ghost that the others can't see, oh Writer/s: Agnes Caroline Thaarup Obel
