A small ship on the ocean A strong wind in its sails We set out on this journey seven seas from here We have travelled farther than anyone before It's too late to go back now We're too far from the shore The stars are different Eyes in the vastness of space We don't belong here But you're not afraid We have heard the stories But no one truly knows What lives across the edges Whereto the water flows How small we are At the mercy of the waves Close to the edge But you're not afraid Legends tell of dragons and endless waterfalls But what if we should find nothing it all?
We live on an island Bound to sink into the sea But until that has happened I live my life normally Tidal waves crash into my shores I hold my breath and brace for their force It's the end of the world as we know it It was written in the stars It's the end of the world and it's forcing its way into my troubled heart I'm haunted by memories Mushrooms bloom into the air When I feel the ground tremble I'm afraid it starts again Tidal waves rush over my walls My heart melts as the water falls It's the end of the world ... Hold on to me Don't be afraid 'cause there is nothing we can do Together we face the end of days Staring into the setting sun It's the end of the world ...
How long have I been staring out of my window, dreaming of taking flight? I remember how it felt to spread my wings But behind bars, I sing a solitary song Somehow you slipped through my hands So gradually, I didn't feel it happen I'm scared I've lost my of chance For happiness with my one companion Where can I go from here? How long have I been waiting for love to return? Time is passing me by This golden cage once shone so brightly Still a single bird sings a solitary song Somehow you slipped through my hands... Wait for me, I will return That is what you said But while you were out there Your heart has changed Somehow you slipped through my hands...

From the Netherlands but based in Bristol, Maaike Siegerist combines inspiration from Maggie Reilly's folk rock collaborations with Mike Oldfield, and the dark fairy-tale atmosphere of gothic metal ballads by Within Temptation. Her new single 'Call of the Last Wildcat' is a portrait of the beautiful and fierce Scottish Wildcat, a UK species on the brink of extinction. ... more
