And the fear goes on shadows
And the tear flows on for nothing.
And the fear goes on shadows
And the tear flows on for nothing.
Under his nose was a dream come true
Been there all the time and he almost knew.
And the fear goes on shadows
And the tear flows on for nothing. . . .
Under his nose was a dream come true . . .
Thoughts of people in misfortune stopped him doing things well

His duty was to use it - left his pearl in the shell.
And the fear goes on shadows
And the tear flows on for nothing. . . .
And the fear goes on shadows
And the tear flows on for nothing. . . .
