Siren Song - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

[bairnson/musker]

Days go by
Adrift upon a rolling sky
The miracles escape my eyes
But i still hope

Time, regret
Is this as good as life can get?
It's only when the spirit sets me free i cope

If i seek in every corner
If i search in every doorway
When the water turns to wine will i believe?
If i navigate the river
Would you take me to your island?
Sing a siren song so i can never leave

Long and wide
Eternity from side to side
Lead me through the rapids
Guide me to the shore

There's a place
That's far beyond this time and space
When each of us comes face to face with something more

If i open up the channel
Will you send me information
If you tune me to your station, i'll receive
If i navigate the river
Would you take me to your island
Sing a siren song so i can never leave

Plans can fail
But only fail to understand
The pyramid will turn to sand and i'll be here
...i will be here
