Partly inspired by the tragic story of Karen Woo and her nine colleagues who were bringing medical care to the poorest communities of the ravaged nation of Afghanistan which they had grown to love when they were ambushed and killed by gunmen. The song is a bitter reaction to how such a beautiful, gifted and selfless person could be murdered so mindlessly .

'It is such a powerful and emotional piece and not easily forgotten once heard. It seems to have some relevance to the conflicting relationships in Afghanistan at the moment.....'

Lynn Woo
Let me tell you what I’ve learned
As I’ve watched the kingdoms burn
Let me tell you what I’ve seen
In the billows of my dreams

Never thought a world like this
Would greet me with a traitor’s kiss
Would leave me with a name like this

Lying here against your breast
Your breathing is my holy rest
Lying here against your skin
All my hopes and joys to win

Never thought a girl like this
Would leave me through a traitor’s kiss
Would leave me with a name like this

Like a dragon in a dream
Like a dagger in a stream
Like a tower wracked with fire
A flame engulfs a heaven torn spire

Never thought a town like this
Would greet me with a traitor’s kiss
Would leave me with a name like this

I'd hoped to fly, I'd hoped to flee
This cold and bleak Gethsemane
A baying mass of rage and blame
Consigns me to their plots again

Never thought a place like this
Would greet me with a traitor’s kiss
Would leave me with a name like this


Spin and spark and spark and spin
The universe is found within
Go raise a lie you warring creeds
The beast will always feed its need

Never thought a God like this
Would greet me with a traitor’s kiss
Would bleed me to die a death like this

So let me tell you what I’ve learned
As I’ve watched the kingdoms burn
Let me tell you what I’ve seen
Through the mirror of my dreams

Never thought a world like this
Would greet me with a traitor’s kiss
Would leave me with a name like this
