Lyrics

I took a walk to the sky
I looked up then I closed my eyes
I won’t need them anymore
I don’t know what I’m standing for

The wind rushing round
I try to shout but make no sound
I don’t have it anymore
I left it on a foreign shore

Oh Magnificent Obsession
Oh Magnificent Obsession
I dream but I don’t sleep

I lay down in the weeds
I told them have your way with me
I can’t fight you anymore
I lay down where the dirt was warm
I lay down with my tools
I told the earth to take them, too
I won’t need them anymore
I cede this battleground, it’s yours

Oh Magnificent Obsession
Oh Magnificent Obsession
I dream but I don’t sleep

I taste the breath of wings
I think I hear an angel sing
I can’t stop this anymore
I take the steps I’m through the door

The wind rushing round
I try to shout, but make no sound
I can’t find it anymore
I don’t know what I’m standing for

Oh Magnificent Obsession
Oh Magnificent Obsession
I dream but I don’t sleep
