Paroles Don't look back Orpheus

Le - modifié le - Par .

This is the tragedy
Of the son of Calliope
She taught him to sing and
Gave him golden guitar strings

Never was a sound so curious
Even the trees would follow Orpheus
Even the furies were not furious

His heart only beat
For the nymph Eurydice
But on their wedding day
She stepped upon a deadly snake
He set off to the underworld alone
There he found Hades sitting on his throne
He said, there's just one way to
let her go

Never was a sound so curious
Even the hounds bow down to Orpheus
Hades laughed, "There's just one catch;
Don't look back."

But he couldn't resist
When looked, she turned to mist
Murmuring farewell
Forever, she returned to hell
