Aquarius
Within Temptation Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I hear your whispers
Break the silence and it calms me down
Your taste on my lips
Your salty kisses

They say I;m seeking out the danger
That one day you won't let me go
I'll drown, you'll take me down

I need you Aquarius
Enchanted I will have to stay
I feel you Aquarius
Cause you the sea set me free
You call to me Aquarius
You call to me, you set me free

I relinquish to your powers
From your grasp, I just can't hide
I missed the danger I had to conquer
You made me feel alive

They say I have to be aware
That one day you won't let me go
I'll drown, you'll take me down

I need you Aquarius
Enchanted I will have to stay
I feel you Aquarius
Cause you the sea set me free
You call to me Aquarius

I long for you Aquarius
I need to be with you again
I fear you, Aquarius
My destiny till the end

I need you Aquarius
Enchanted I will have to stay
I feel you Aquarius
Cause you the sea set me free




You call to me Aquarius
You call to me, you set me free
