Heart With No Companion (Live)

I greet you from the other side
Of sorrow and despair
With a love so vast and shattered
It will reach you everywhere


And I sing this for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled


For the heart with no companion
For the soul without a king
For the prima ballerina
Who cannot dance to anything


Through the days of shame that are coming
Through the nights of wild distress
Tho' your promise count for nothing
You must keep it nonetheless


You must keep it for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled


For the heart with no companion ...
I greet you from the other side ...
