  • I can hear you through the silence
    Talking slowly to the wind
    No one ever sees the real you.
    And your standing in the darkness
    Looking out towards the sea
    No one ever sees the things you do

    And I know you
    I can see how long you've waited by your eyes
    And we've got so far to go to the horizon
    But if the legend ever fades
    Turning you will find me
    View the king of spades
    Though we never saw the light of day
    No way.

    But to you it made no difference
    Cus you've seen it all before
    No one ever seemed to let you be
    So you wait until the day

    And you walk on to the shore
    No one ever seemed to be so free.

    And I know you
    I can see how long you've waited by your eyes
    And we've got so far to go to the horizon
    But if the legend ever fades
    Turning you will find me
    View the king of spades
    Though we never saw the light of day
    No way

    When I see your eyes
    I can see the soul
    Why did you play the king of spades?
    Why did you play the king of spades?
    Why did you play the king of spades?
