You saw my face
It started your rebellion
If you were the king
Then I could be your Helen

But I was called away to live
Upon a foreign shore
I don't believe that you should start a war
To die in glory

Don't launch your ships for me
I belong across the ocean
You are playing with destiny
And I can't breath with you staring at me.

You still have it all
So think what you are doing
Your cities could fall
Your house could come to ruin
If I could change my heart
You know you are the one I'd choose
But you're the one with everything to lose
And what's the use? So


If I was not to know
That I could never feel the same
You have to know that you are not to blame
And it's a shame, it's a shame


Don't launch your ships for me
I belong across the ocean
And I just can't, no I can't
I can't breathe with you staring at me.
