Impossible Task

#1

1, 2..1, 2, 3

When I look at you
I see me
Faceless, persuasive
Evasive
Hard to trace
When I look at you

Oh, Lily
Where have you gone
Oh, Lily
What have you done
Beautiful as we are
We are not ageless
I’m? faithless
And you never even knew it

You would say that this
Just an impossible task
But I must go on searching
So, search as long as you can
Says the man that I love
I know how much you mean to her
She loved your independent soul
So search until you can search no more

Yes, I should come back now
Bring my tears back to you
But I promised her
And I have failed her
What to do
What to do
I have failed her

And, in his voice
I felt, no matter what the price
He would stand behind me
He in all his glory
I have found a prize
I was his first love
And I would be his last

He knows I will return
(Contradictory to sensitivity)
When I can
And she would say, “don’t you need more”
(I must see this thing through)
(I must go on searching)
I release you from your promise
(He was not my first one, but he’ll be my last one)
Separation once more
(I’ll come back when I can)

Contradictory to sensitivity
Promises, we made so many of them
After all this time
You must forget me
Forget about me

And you would say that is just an impossible task
Oh, well he knows that
That is why he asks
You have done everything
That you can
Go home now
You have to

Contradictory
Oh, Lily
To sensitivity
Oh, Lily
Where have you gone

Sensitivity
After all this time
You must forget about me
Separation, once more
Promises, so many of them

When I look at you
I see me
Faceless, persuasive
Whoa, Lily…
Where have you gone
Oh, Lily…
What have you done
Beautiful as you are
We aren’t ageless
Oh, yes
It’s sad, and you’ve never even known me

You would say that this is
An impossible task
But, I must go on searching
So, search until you die
Says the man I love
Search until you drop
I love your independent soul
And I know how much she means to you
I know

“I just have no more strength”, she says
I should come home now
And bring your tears to me back
Oh yes, Lily
And, she said “but that baby
Oh, where has she gone”
I promised her mother I would find her
And I have failed her

And, in his voice
I felt that, I felt that
Who knows why
No matter what the price
I knew I’d found a prize
There he was in all his glory
He says, “go on
Search, drop, die”
“You’ll never find her”
Oh, Lily
Hour after hour

Contradictory to sensitivity
But I will see this thing through
I will find this baby
He was not my first one
But he was my last one
Oh, I’ll come back when I can

But, don’t you need more
Don’t you need more or you and me
And Lily walks up to him
And says, “I’m leaving again”
Separation once more
Ooh…Oh yes
It’s not the saddest
Like you’ve never seen me
It’s an impossible task
But I must go on searching
