ORPHEO DON’T LOOK BACK


Please keep your word to me Orpheo
keep your promise and your pact
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

I need to know you trust me Orpheo
and that I can trust you back
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

Hold me fast and faithfully Orpheo
love's such a narrow track
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

Imagine love forever Orpheo
a love that would never lack
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

When souls are filled with darkness Orpheo
and light is but a crack
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

When voices are dry as dust Orpheo
and throats with thirst are so wracked
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back

When every fibre in your body Orpheo
says there's nothing there but black
I'm right behind you Orpheo
Orpheo don't look back
