Skyclad - Jumping My Shadow lyrics

"And ever has it been that love knows not it's own depth until the hour of separation"

Maybe someday someone will love me
For what I am instead of what I should be
Until that day I'll just sit here weeping
Chasing dreams is like shadow leaping

The face behind the mirror
An unrecognised reflection
His eyes look old and tired
Filled with bitter recollection
The cross that he has carried
Was a burden I have made
It's a baptism of tears
They are the seas in which I bathe.

'cause there's a fire in my heart but I can't breathe for the smoke
Seems that I'm living proof my life's a practical joke
There's a wind in my sails but I have lost all my direction
With no stars to guide me now you're not here beside me any more

Somehow, somewhere you will discover
A love so sweet that it tasted like no other
And on that day may you both drink deep
From that grail we found but then we failed to keep

It's a lesson I've learned well
Some things just cannot be
The key that will unlock your soul
Is someone else not me
If you should remember
Hope you smile and wish me well
As I walk my path to heaven
Through ten thousand miles of hell

'cause there's a fire in my heart but I can't breathe for the smoke
Seems that I'm living proof my life's a practical joke
There's a wind in my sails but I have lost all my direction
With no stars to guide me now you're not here beside me any more

I stand alone against the cold grey sky
It was blue that day but not as blue as I
I left my heart high on that Roman hill
I'll wait a thousand years but it will be there still
Holding hands in silence as the day came to an end
We climbed up there as lovers then we walked back down just friends
I've known my share of heartaches, never thought of them as bad
But had never quite imagined I could ever feel this sad

'cause there's a fire in my heart but I can't breathe for the smoke
Seems that I'm living proof my life's a practical joke
There's a wind in my sails but I have lost all my direction
With no stars to guide me now you're not here beside me any more
