I’d build you a tower I’d build you a monument A second of your time Turns into a lifetime spent When the Titanic of my heart smashes Into your ice-grey eyes I’m drowning in your North Sea, and I don’t mind I’m diving down to heat I’m diving down to see I know there’s something warm below the freezing You know that I believe I’m building you a monument Against my better judgment Better then to die, than be too afraid to try

You left me a message telling me all’s not lost A test of devotion, an ocean I still have to cross And as I climb up from my deepest depths To reach your heights I wonder will I find A frozen satellite? I’m rising up at speed I’m rocketing to see I know there’s something burning inside your freezing On up towards the light Of your ice-grey eyes

You know that I believe I’m building you a monument Against my better judgment What will I find In your ice-grey eyes?

I walk out of the shadow and into the light
