[Nicholas:] All your eyes have ever seen All you've ever heard Is etched upon my memory Is spoken through my words All that I take with me Is all you've left behind We're sharing one eternity Living in two minds Linked by an endless thread Impossible to break
At this point in the album's narrative, Nicholas is beginning to come to terms with the strange link between his life and Victoria's. He realises that everything that he experiences is an echo of Victoria's life, and that their lives are linked by 'an endless thread'.
This song is very sombre, calm and sad. It features only piano and James' singing, and features mainly as a transition into the next song, Fatal Tragedy.
