Down in the street they're all singing and shouting 
Staying alive though the city is dead 
Hiding their shame 
Behind hollow laughter 
While you are crying alone on your bed 
Pity Cassandra 
That no-one believed you 
But then again you were lost from the start 
Now we must suffer nd sell our secrets 
Bargain, playing smart 
Aching in our hearts 

Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood 
Now the last day is dawning 
Some of us wanted 
But none of us would 
Listen to words of warning 
But on the darkest of nights 
Nobody knew how to fight 
And we were caught in our sleep 
Sorry Cassandra 
I didn't believe 
You really had the power 
I only saw it as dreams you would weave 
Until the final hour 

So in the morning 
Your ship will be sailing 
Now that your father and sister are gone 
There is no reason for you to linger 
Grieving deeply but still moving on 
You know the future is casting a shadow 
No-one else sees it 
But you know your fate 
Packing your bags 
Being slow and thorough 
Knowing, though you're late 
That ship is sure to wait 

Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood 
Now the last day is dawning 
Some of us wanted but none of us would 
Listen to words of warning 
But on the darkest of nights 
Nobody knew how to fight 
And we were caught in our sleep 
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe 
You really had the power 
I only saw it as dreams you would weave 
Until the final hour 

I watched her ship leaving harbour at sunrise 
Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain 
She stood on deck just a tiny figure 
Rigid and restrained 
Blue eyes filled with pain 

Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood 
Now the last day is dawning 
Some of us wanted 
But none of us would 
Listen to words of warning 
But on the darkest of nights 
Nobody knew how to fight 
And we were caught in our sleep 
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe 
You really had the power 
I only saw it as dreams you would weave 
Until the final hour
