The Ballad Of Echo

Narcissus: If I’d have said I love you
Echo: Then I’d have said it too
Narcissus: You tried so hard to tell me
Echo: But there was nothing I could do
Narcissus: You wanted to ask me questions
Echo: But I was cursed when I met you
Narcissus: I switched on to your beauty
Echo: But we never made it through

Narcissus: And I said: “Please tell me your name” and you said:
Echo: Please tell me your name
Narcissus: And I said: “I’ll ask you again” and you said:
Echo: I’ll ask you again
Narcissus: It’s driving me insane

Narcissus: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Echo: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Narcissus: You’re doing it again
Echo: You’re doing it again
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end
Echo: You know it’s gonna have to end
Narcissus: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Echo: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end
Echo: You know it’s gonna have to end
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end

Echo: I followed all your footsteps
Narcissus: All the way until the Moon
Echo: I longed to sing it to you
Narcissus: But you never found your own sweet tune
Echo: I waited all my life
Narcissus: Did we really have choice?
The Summer is nearly over
Echo: And all that’s left of me is this voice.

Narcissus: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Echo: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Narcissus: You’re doing it again
Echo: You’re doing it again
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end
Echo: You know it’s gonna have to end
Narcissus: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Echo: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end
Echo: You know it’s gonna have to end

Narcissus: Well the look in your eyes doesn’t fit what you say
Echo: I just want you to know that I need you to stay
Narcissus: Why can’t you put the words together?
Echo: You think I’m crazy when I reach out for your hand
I’m making it worse, it’s a curse not a plan
Narcissus: I wish that somehow I could understand

Narcissus: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Echo: Why d’you keep on saying what I say?
Narcissus: You’re doing it again
Echo: You’re doing it again
Narcissus: You know it’s gonna have to end
Echo: You know it’s gonna have to end
