The Cat Empire

The Cat Empire - No Longer There

rate me

And though you'd like to hear a song

That sings everything's all right

The temperature is warm

The fire horses sleep

So gently comes the night

You close your eyes and stare

The ground they're on is bare

But once it was as deep

As wildest giants dreams

It's no longer there

And all of our desires

They mirror skies with flames

And smoke out heaven's halls

Who was that you called

They're no longer there

Here it goes again

Here it goes again

Here it goes again

What would you leave behind when all your fields are dead?

When your territories are dried out and your cities drowned and swept

What would you leave behind when those who bear your name

Are born in that place that you wrecked?

What would you leave behind when you're no longer there?

Would you sail to distant shores?

And hide within the hills

And softly close your doors

Pretend the world is safe

And wait for heaven's call

Or would you turn and face the seas

And come beside your cave

There's chance but if you dare

And swift as honour's steeds

Before it's no longer there

Here it goes again

Here it goes agaaain

Here it goes aga .. ain!

What would you leave behind when all your fields are dead?

When your territories are dried out and your cities drowned and swept

What would you leave behind

When those who bear your name are born in that place that you wrecked?

What would you leave behind when you're no longer there?

To deny or to despair

It's really just the same

Everything between

It means we have to change

Cos when a one forgets

The world begins to fade

And all the shapes and shades

That made the colours see

When they suddenly turned grey

That they're no longer there
