never shown the way,
we're always in the rain,
but never for today
that we live our own

shadows on the hillside,
shepherds on the inside
guiding us away
from this old, cold world

answered in whispers,
i found them in the rivers,
what you going to do
about your life
now you're alone

pardon my expression,
please tell me your direction,
don't you know the way
through this old, cold world

when i saw you there
i couldn't help
but to wonder why you left me

i put your song in my heart
there it will be now we're apart
i put your song in my heart
there it will be right from the start

hiding won't protect you,
fighting won't correct you,
surrender to the death
of this old cold world
