You and she, a soul divided
How much distance is enough?
Get too near, the mirror shatters
Yet she gives you songs of love

She’s a wound that never heals
And all you have to lose
This is a fact the heart conceals
When you’re married to the Muse

Now you give in. Now you fight it
A drowning man with feet of lead
You’re full of her and nothing matters
Lying on your soft sea bed

She’s a wound that never heals
You sing the palest blues
This is a fact the heart reveals
When you’re married to the Muse

If you hold her you will lose her
Then your sleep will have no dreams
The part of you that knows
Hates the part of you that needs

Climb aboard the storm and ride it
Chase the piece of you she claims
Oblivious, the truth lies battered
Real or not, it feels the same

She’s a wound that never heals
And all you have to lose
These are facts the heart feels
When you’re married to the Muse
