But you never cared to look over your shoulder.
You fastened your pace and I failed to follow,
Left in a land even darker and colder.
No music, no colors, no hope, no you,
I tried to scream but my lips were on fire.
So I swallowed the flames and called out your name.
I was a muse with no one to inspire.
So I drowned in thick silence,
On my bruised lips just one name.
For I was still Eurydice,
But my Orpheus never came.
