Sometimes I falter 
beneath an endless sky 
And I can't remember when, 
only why

And I call out your name in the darkness 
from far away

These days are so strange 
(so strange) 
Like a fire that has no flame 
Like a vessel that's hungry 
for rain

And I call out your name in the darkness 
from far away

And soldiers all march and fight 
Spending up their youthfulness 
and skinny pride 
While maidens all sleep 
with their hearts all on their sleeves 
Bloodied from victory

These days are so long 
And still I plow my way 
Through these nights so cold 
And these nights so strange 
When even the stars 
seem to lose their way

And I call out your name in the darkness 
from far away

And soldiers all march and fight 
Spending up their youthfulness 
and skinny pride 
While maidens sleep 
with their hearts all on their sleeves 
Bloodied from victory

With all my heart 
I want to march to where you sleep 
But you rise no more 
Like the strange fruit of war 
Laid down 
at the victors' feet

And I call out your name 
from the darkness 
And I call out your name 
from the darkness 
so far away
