Hans Zimmer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Long ago your name
A shadow in my dreams
The mild brave still searching
Greyling winds fall apart
I believe your heart

Tell me now what you see
Tell me what you feel
Now you’re here, tell me
Tell me now what you know
Never let me go
Tell me now what you see

Hope cries from the hill
The mist clears from your eyes
Your banner will promise
Let’s remember the start
I believe your heart

Tell me now what you know
Never let me go
Tell me what you see
Tell me now what you see
Tell me what you feel
Now you’re here, tell me
Tell me now what you know




Never let me go
Tell me now what you see
