In the opening/of the first act
We were tossed aside/in a shipwreck
and just when we thought/it couldn't get any worse
She filled my head with a second verse

Don't be so fast to wipe the tears away/


The muse of fire that would ascend

The brightest heaven of invention
Untie the knot and let us breath out in the open

Am I just passing air right through my teeth?


In the meanwhile came intermission/

and morale was admittedly low
And just when we thought we had it all wrong
She filled my head with another song

The muse of fire that would ascend

The brightest heaven of invention
Untie the knot and let us breath out in the open

Am I just passing air right through my teeth?

Through my tears?

Real life and true love and happiness is complicated


The muse of fire that would ascend

The brightest heaven of invention
Untie the knot and let us breath out in the open

Am I just passing air right through my teeth?

Through my tears?
