lyrics

we stood together on the old balcony
I asked her where she came from, she pointed out to sea
a moment seemed a lifetime, time was standing still
she whispered «subtlety may win me, force never will»

they lingered for a while, he seemed a bit distressed
he may have thought she was putting him through a test
she knew he was blinded, by his need for a thrill
she thought «subtlety may win me, force never will»

I turned away for a moment, and then she was gone
was like someone drove my heart into the burning sun
all was lost, her last words lingered still
«Subtlety may win me, force never will»

the high crescent moon did indeed make him feel
the delightful well known feeling, strange and unreal
was like the world from beyond whispered from behind the hill
«subtlety may win me, force never will»

he climbed the slope, he walked all day, he crossed the frozen lake
he searched above, he searched below, he took what he could take
he said «if I don't find you soon, I will have to kill»
she said «subtlety may win me, force never will»

he saw the shadows, he saw their trail, but he didn't hear their song
he was to proud to think that he might've been wrong
now he's doomed, to spend his days unfulfilled
'cause subtlety may win you, force never will

so now I'm still going on, I see her now and then
she still feels the same, she will always be my friend
right now I'm going up, but soon I'll bee going downhill
subtlety may win her, force never will
