Ten – The Quest lyrics

A Legendary knight
A solitary quest
Guides him through the endless mist
Of time that has no end
For she's shining like a beacon
In his mind as time again
He's haunted by the one
Whose name is life

For her eyes the bluest sapphires
Can turn a man to stone
Her lips can shame the reddest rose
Her hair the purest gold
It falls cascading flawlessly
On skin as white as snow
For her he'll search
The barren wastes of time

He turns a page in history
Playing from the score
Of a lover's staveless symphony
To the one he adores
He sails the seas of mystery
And her flag is on the mast
In his dreams she is first and last
She's his future, she's his past

Beyond the icy wastelands
The seas of fire and flame
He came upon a castle wall
Great towers and palacade
As he knew his quest was over
As he held him in her gaze
For this love would set
The battlements ablaze

Across the plains of mystery
Scripted as he goes
Love sustains the infamy
Time only knows
Takes the task within his grasp
When the die is cast
Only now she is first and last
She's his future, she's his past

She led to her chamber
She pulled him to her skin
She wrapped herself around him
And her cries were deafening
She realized that there could be
No other only him
For at last someone had touched
What lies within

In a castle on a mountain
He looks upon her face
And every day is everything
Inside her soft embrace
Through their hourglass infinity
As time slips through his hands
He will lose her
Till the final grain of sand
