  • Orpheus melted the heart of Persephone,
    But I never had yours
    I followed you back to the end of the path,
    But I never found the door

    And you can work to save your love
    You can bear it from the earth below

    You can work but you can't let go
    Oh, oh but you have to know

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before
    I don't have to see you every day,
    But I just want to know you're there

    Quietly took to the dark of the day
    And the hiss of the summer night
    The heat of the breeze was a cell block wall
    And when I looked you were out of sight

    And you can work to save your love
    You can bear it from the earth below

    You can work but you can't let go
    Oh, oh but you have to know

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before
    I don't have to see you every day,
    But I just want to know you're there

    And you can work to save your love
    You can bear it from the earth below

    You can work but you can't let go
    Oh, oh but you have to know

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before
    I don't have to see you every day,
    But I just want to know you're there

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before
    I don't have to see you every day,
    But I just want to know you're there

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before
    I don't have to see you every day,
    But I just want to know you're there

    Don't look back all you'll ever get
    Is the dust from the steps before Writer/s: ZOOEY DESCHANEL
