about

Inspired by my favorite movie Labyrinth (by Jim Henson) and by a song written for me by my very own Goblin King.

lyrics

Chorus: I am she who walks these walls, and I cannot forget
I've been trying to return to you, but I haven't found you yet
Time is nothing but a passing breath that marks each twist and turn
I am lost within this place continuing to learn

I'm searching for a time that's past, oh so long ago
A fairytale of love long lost, the depths that no one knows
I tasted once of magic fruit and dared to meet your eyes
Now I weep for crumbling labyrinth walls, the loss of what was mine

Count your steps and mark your way
But don't believe your marks will stay
Seek out the center, enter in
But you will not return again

I walk over walls I once ran past, empty now of friends
And even so without their aid, the labyrinth never ends
Once overcoming trials of the heart did let me in
Now there's naught but stones and dusty walls, no trials to begin

I count my steps and make my way,
I can't believe my marks still stay
Old words still linger in my ear
But I will not give in to fear!

The challenge met and match was set, a Queen against a King
It took leaving you to show me what you taught me with your dream
The strength to make my choices and in choosing shape my fate
Now I've returned to choose again, and I pray I'm not too late

I count my steps and make my way
I can't believe my marks still stay
This time there is no game to win
But will you ever let me in?

I count my steps and make my way
I can't believe my marks still stay
Seek out the center enter in
And I will not return again!
