Sailing down
Down the Styx again
Without you my love
I want to return but then
I see all my friends
They want me to join but then
They all melt away
Without you, alone

And the river's running through my veins
Lately she don't seem the same
And the blood keeps calling out my name

I pass by the sins
left by a different man
Tides brought them here
Cast by a different hand
The wisps of the winds
Blow with the Styx again
Pushing me on
Without you, alone

And the river's running through my veins
Lately she don't seem the same
And the blood keeps calling out my name

My will must be strong
To rise with a different life
My will must eb long
I'm still pushing for different heights
The wisps of the winds
Blow down the Styx again
And the river runs red
And I'm left alone.

And the river's running through my veins
Lately she don't seem the same
And the blood keeps calling out my name
