about

The traveler extricates himself from the bar-fly's tightening grip and, joining the band onstage again, notices all the broken mirrors on the walls. Although the dimly lit room is almost empty, he sees shadows and silhouettes of dozens of dancers moving in the broken glass.

lyrics

The night is dark, the hall is huge and
I can hear that awful sound.
Walking alone to find some secret,
that has sunk into the ground.

Your broken heart, a buried treasure.
But I'm three sheets to the wind.
I feel the warmth and tender pleasures,
as we start it up again.

'Cause just one drop of real love,
will melt our cold cold hearts
but where will we find true love,
when we don't know how to start


Silhouttes and broken mirrors,
Lining all the walls.
I stand along and watch these shadows,
dance around the hall.

Your secret heart, your true desire,
never fades away,
Can't pull your hand out of that fire,
no matter what you say.

'Cause just one drop of real love,
would melt your cold cold heart
but how will you find real love,
when you don't let down your guard.

Dark silhouettes and broken mirrors,
littering the halls.
I stand alone and watch these shadows,
whirl around the hall.
your broken heart a buried treasure,
never fade away.
Can't pull my hands out of that fire.
No matter what I say.
