The star that gives us light Has been gone a while But it’s not an illusion The ache in my heart Is so much a part of who I am Something in your eyes Took a thousand years to get here Something in your eyes Took a thousand years, a thousand years Hold me close Hold me close and don’t let me go Hold me close Like I’m someone that you might know Hold me close The darkness just lets us see Who we are I've got your life inside of me Iris, Iris Once we are born We begin to forget The very reason we came But you I’m sure I've met Long before the night The stars went out We’re meeting up again Hold me close Hold me close and don’t let me go Hold me close Like I’m someone that you might know Hold me close The darkness just lets us see Who we are I've got your life inside of me Iris, Iris The stars are bright But do they know The universe is beautiful but cold You took me by the hand I thought that I was leading you But it was you made me your man Machine, I dream where you are Iris standing in the hall She tells me I can do it all Iris wakes to my nightmares Don’t fear the world It isn't there Iris playing on the Strand She buries the boy beneath the sand Iris says that I will be the death of her It was not me Iris, Iris She said free yourself to be yourself If only you could see yourself Free yourself to be yourself If only you could see
