Night of Hunters intro by tori


Fearlessness

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Fearlessness blew in
with the wind
waking up to greet the sun
We sailed on like the ancient ones
into the Nine Underworlds
We knew Dangers would come
I had faith in both of us

Listen to your heart
you can hear me
Listen to your heart
you can hear me

Day turned night when he questioned,
"Why can't you balance the skies?"
Soulless storms have sent Watchers
with blade-less weapons to fight

Teams of Horses of the Brine
followed his cry
through the fire
Demons of the Wild hissed with the wind
did you listen?

Listen to your heart
can you hear me
Listen to your heart
can you hear me

Fearlessness soon reminded me,
"You must be stronger than they"
cautioning, "There are those who live
to be cruel for the fun of it."

He let in a dark companion
that orbited between us
His siren friends convinced him that Love
was no match against storms to come
Their songs inflamed by Doubt
Fearlessness drown them out

Teams of Horses of the Brine
followed his cry
through the fire
Demons of the Wild hissed with the wind
did you listen?

Listen to your heart
can you hear me
Listen to your heart
can you hear me

Did we begin
without knowing it
to find fault in every gift
Then that was when
the Blame began
What were once 2 forces joined
in Fearlessness
