Past the Point of No Return

Music so often provides a potent message lyrically and melodically for me….. It always has.

Often I’ll awake in the morning with a very particular song playing through me. Today, one overcame me suddenly in the middle of the afternoon. So now, after listening to it sing inside for over an hour, I’ll simply share it with you.

Something about right now…. today…. calls out with the anthem, “We’re past the point of no…. return….”  As I said, this musical message began surging through me an hour ago and has continued for the entire hour++…… Maybe it sings to more than just me, for reasons that I can only imagine….

Past the Point of No Return…..

This verse especially calls out: “
Past the point of no return, no backward glances
Our games of make-believe are at an end
Past all thought of ‘If’ or ‘When’, no use resisting
Abandon thought and let the dream descend”

Go away for the trap it is set and waits for it’s prey.
You have come here
In pursuit of your deepest urge
In pursuit of that wish which till now
Has been silent
Silent.

I have brought you
That our passions may fuse and merge
In your mind you’ve already succumbed to me, dropped all defenses
Completely succumbed to me
Now you are here with me
No second thoughts
You’ve decided
Decided.

Past the point of no return, no backward glances
Our games of make-believe are at an end
Past all thought of ‘If’ or ‘When’, no use resisting
Abandon thought and let the dream descend

What raging fire shall flood the soul?
What rich desire unlocks its door?
What sweet seduction lies before us?

Past the point of no return, the final threshold
What warm unspoken secrets will we learn?
Beyond the point of no return

You have brought me to that moment when words run dry
To that moment when speech disappears into silence, silence
I have come here hardly knowing the reason why
In my mind I’ve already imagined our bodies entwining
Defenseless and silent now I am here with you
No second thoughts, I’ve decided, decided

Past the point of no return, no going back now
Our passion play has now at last begun
Past all thought of right or wrong, one final question
How long should we two wait before we’re one?

When will the blood begin to race
The sleeping bud burst into bloom?
When will the flames at last consume us?

Past the point of no return, the final threshold
The bridge is crossed, so stand and watch it burn
We’ve passed the point of no return

Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Lead me, save me from my solitude
Say you’ll want me with you here beside you
Anywhere you go let me go too, Christine that’s all I ask of you
