XXIII. To Hold You
(Odysseus begs Penelope)

I am today just as you'd recall
Feeling my way until you made me crawl
Don't think I've given up on you

I've come and gone, a feather in the night
Stared down the dawn, my eyes were burning bright
Don't think I've given up the fight

But I'm still me
And you're still you
There's nothing more
For me to do
But hold you

I tried to speak, but you untied my words
My knees went weak the moment that I heard
I see the sleepless nights on your face

You felt the pain, how could I forget?
You played the game, the moment that I left
I see the sleepless nights on your face

But I'm still me
And you're still you
There's nothing more
For me to do
But hold you

I can't see
I can't breathe

XIV. Water
(What becomes of Odysseus)

I broke the chains
I unfurled the mast
The stars are on my left and I'm on my way

The sea is mine
Oh how the water shines
The stars are on my left and I'm on my way

I'm free again
And I won't let it go
I'm free again
And I just need to know

Water in waking
Water in dreaming

You have brought me here to...
You have brought me here to...
You have brought me here to...
