You Mustn't Worry

lyrics

You mustn’t worry, I will find you!
You mustn’t worry, I will find you.

Well you’re hiding from a wicked world where debt collectors prowl
When you’re hoping for redemption, and returning to us all
I will find you.

Cause without you, the world seems black and white…
You’re like a prism that shines with colored light

When you went to war, I felt deserted and I thought I’d waste away
I asked the gods to bring you, but they didn’t listen to me when I prayed
I sacrificed bulls and grains, hoping that they’d be appeased
But I must find you myself, for the gods cannot be pleased.

You mustn’t worry, I will find you!
You mustn’t worry, I will find you.

When you’re standing in the front lines with the bodies falling ’round
When you just want to retreat and place your feet on hallowed ground
I will find you.

And when you’re wandering in the desert and there’s nothing there but stones
When you spot a flock of vultures, and beneath them piles of bones
I will find you.

You’re castle’s full of suitors, who behave like looters, and like birds of prey
Because you’re not here they woo your wife, drink your beer, and eat at your buffet
I don’t believe I should grieve, though they tell me that you’re dead
I will not let another man entice me into bed

But if you’re taken as a lover in another woman’s hands
If you miss me and you can’t stay there despite all her demands
I will find you

And if your soul is lost in battle and goes to Elysian Fields
If there’s many men between us bearing armor, spears and shields
I will find you

Cause without you, the world seems black and white…
You’re like a prism that shines with colored light

I will find you!
