  • Lyrics
  • Tied to the testing of wills
    And my heart breaks and spills
    Left to the sight of the sky
    In your arms I'm defined

    Thrown to the wolves in the minds of your enemies
    In the minds of your enemies
    And I'm thrown in the eyes of your foolishness

    Was this what I'm meant for
    No longer interesting
    Fall forward to even the score
    Just a thought to you

    Tied to the testing of wills
    When my heart breaks and spills
    Left to the sight of the sky
    In your arms I'm defined

    Thrown to the wolves in the minds of your enemies
    In the minds of your enemies
    And I'm thrown in the eyes of your foolishness

    And I'm nothing more than a line in your book [Repeat x4]
    In your book [Repeat x3]

    Was this what I'm meant for
    No longer interesting
    Fall forward to even the score
    Just a thought to you

    Just a thought to you
    Just a thought to you

    And I'm nothing more
    Yeah I'm nothing more
    Than a line in your book
    Yeah I'm nothing more
    Than a line in your bookWriter/s: DARRAN ANTHONY SMITH, KRIS ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES

  • Megan from Newcastle, Okwow. I always wondered what this song was about, it's so beautiful. And yes, Chris. that is a wonderful story, no matter what.
  • Chris from Bolton, EnglandJuneau was a Roman god who stole Zeus's wife from him. "Tied to the testing of wills" relates to the decision between old love and new love. His lover runs away with him but Zeus chases after them with an army of his loyalest gods. "Thrown to the wolves in the mind of your enemies" describes the danger they lovers face when on the run. Zeus catches Juneau, but instead of killing him, he shows mercy on his wife appeals for her return in exchange for Juneau's life. "Fall forward to even the score" explains how Zeus would rather they both survived and he had herback than killing juneau and her leave. While Juneau is prepared to risk his life for her she goes back to him - secretly she still loved Zeus but never told Juneau. "I'm nothing more than a line in your book" describes how Juneau was only a moment of madness in her life. Now i'm 99% sure that's a real legend, but even if i'm wrong, it's a beautiful idea.
