Lyrics

Oblivion

VERSE 1
I just don’t know
Where I am going
Or where on earth I’ve been
I don’t know
Where I am right now
Reality or dream
And all around there is nothing
There’s no-one else but me
Nothing only silence
Won’t someone hear my plea

VERSE 2
Point me in the right direction
Which way do I go
No left, no right, no up above
There’s nothing down below
No north, no south
No east, no west
No sun or moon or stars
No Mercury no Mother Earth
No Jupiter or Mars

Chorus
I’m in oblivion
Stuck in oblivion
No light, no sound
No smell, no taste
No love, no hate, no hope
I can’t laugh, I can’t cry
I can’t live,
I can’t die
I can’t cope

I n s t r u m e n t a l

Bridge
Music’s turned to silence
N
o jazz, no blues, no soul
No classical, no hip-hop
N
o pop, no rock ’n’ roll

Chorus
I’m in oblivion
Stuck in oblivion
No light, no sound
No smell, no taste
No love, no hate, no hope
I can’t laugh, I can’t cry
I can’t live,
I can’t di
I can’t cope


VERSE 3

I can hear a whisper
So soothing and sincere
‘You’ve arrived too early
Go back and persevere
Come and I will guide you
Back where you belong
For as long as I’m beside you
You will flourish and be strong’

Chorus
Farewell Oblivion
Farewell Oblivion
‘Love and peace and faith
Will be restored
When you are near
And we will meet again
We will surely meet again
Another time, another place
Another year’

FAREWELL OBLIVION
                                               

I must have been stressed out when I wrote this song - it's a weird one!
However, it does make me sing and dance, and play my air-guitar!
