  • Oh, the king
    Gone mad within his suffering
    Called out for relief
    Someone cure him of his grief

    His only son
    Cut down, but the battle won
    Oh, what is it worth
    When all that's left is hurt

    Like the stars chase the sun
    Over the glowing hill, I will conquer
    Blood is running deep
    Some things never sleep

    Suddenly I'm overcome
    Dissolving like the setting sun
    Like a boat into oblivion
    Cause you're driving me away

    Now you have me on the run
    The damage is already done
    Come on, is this what you want
    Cause you're driving me away

    Oh, the queen of peace
    Always does her best to please
    Is it any use
    Somebody's gotta lose

    Like a long stream
    I'll bear all this echoing
    Oh, what is it worth
    All that's left is hurt

    Like the stars chase the sun
    Over the glowing hill, I will conquer
    Blood is running deep
    Some things never sleep

    Suddenly I'm overcome
    Dissolving like the setting sun
    Like a boat into oblivion
    Cause you're driving me away

    Now you have me on the run
    The damage is already done
    Come on, is this what you want
    Cause you're driving me away

    And my love is no good
    Against the fortress that it made of you
    Blood is running deep
    Sorrow that you keep

    Suddenly I'm overcome
    Dissolving like the setting sun
    Like a boat into oblivion
    Cause you're driving me away

    Now you have me on the run
    The damage is already done
    Come on, is this what you want
    Cause you're driving me away Writer/s: FLORENCE LEONTINE MARY WELCH, MARKUS DRAVS
