Its hold is forgotten
All damage and wear is untold
It won't come round here again
I have fallen from a great height
And I'm lying in water -- Waiting for light

This path, so dark and heavy
Don't think I'll walk this way again
It rains in me, it rains in me
I am without love - and it rains in me, here
Lying in water -- waiting for light
I'm lying in water -- waiting for light

My heart is gutted, arms lie empty by my side
Darling - all love has died
And I'm lying in water
Waiting for light
