The Nomad

I search the depths of the universe
For reasons to hate you
But the heavens keep its mysteries
As the sea keeps its vessels.

I learnt all about you
The silence and the laughter
Tonight it is cold
It is time to leave.

It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I travel
It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I pass through.

It was a light November day
Autumn leaves
My life was only ashes
You pushed my gate

I didn't ask
What you wanted of me
But as soon as you entered
I knew it was you.

It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I travel
It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I pass through.

You promised nothing
One cannot hold the wind
It's a short night in the dark
And the moon waits for me.

By the numerous plains
And the bitter moors
I go among the shadows
Following your light.

It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I travel
It is because of you, you, you the nomad
That I pass through.
