Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Nature Of The Beast lyrics

[Swallow]
It seems to me you waited till the time came
I believe, you returned for us at last
It seems to me you tested me so many ways
I believe, every test I passed
It seems to me that every test I passed

[The Man]
If you go deep down inside my eye’s, do you see a saviour, a prophet or even a priest?
Or do you only see the blackness there, that’s the nature of the beast
The one that you should fear the most, may be the ones you fear the least
If you know me then you have to know, the nature of the beast

There are hungry devils everywhere, it’s on my heart they feast
Let me rise above the carcass of this all too mortal beast
If I had the chance I’d fly away, I’d see myself released
I’d fly above the carcass of this poor, pathetic beast

[Swallow]
I don’t know why you try to make me doubt you
I don’t know why when I believe my spirit so
Some day soon, they’ll no longer threaten you
Till that day all my prayers are yours
Until then, all my prayers are yours

[The Man]
The things that you despise the most maybe the ones that can stand the least
There are lots of things you’ve yet to learn about the nature of the beast
There’s always wars and plagues and death, the terrors have never ceased
There’s nothing you or I can do about the nature of the beast

[Swallow]
I’m not afraid, you taught me that

[The Man]
You fool why can’t you see

[Swallow]
I’m not listening to a word you say, It was God sent you to me

[The Man]
What’s the only sound left in this world, when every other sound has ceased?
It’s the breathing in and the breathing out
It’s still, it’s still, in me
It’s still the nature of the beast

There are hungry devils everywhere, it’s on my heart they feast
Let me rise above the carcass of this pitiable beast
If I had the chance I’d fly away, I’d see my soul released
I’d fly above the carcass of the nature of the beast

[Swallow]
There’s a prayer for the lost and for the lonely
There’s a prayer to make the blind one’s see
But if you, you are not what you must be
Then it’s true you haven’t got a prayer for me
And I, I haven’t got a prayer:… I have nothing

[The Man]
So many things in your life that your bound to regret
Why didn’t I do this? Why didn’t I do that?
So many chances you’ve lost that you’ll never forget

So many unspoken vows, so many unopened doors
So many unbroken chains, so many unsettled scores
Why didn’t I take it? Why didn’t I make it come true?

[Swallow]
No one’s ever looked at me

[Swallow & The Man]
No one’s ever looked at me
The way your looking at me now
