Lyrics
Strength and devotion come without warning
You know when you know what to do
No simple scheming, you should be sleeping
Sometimes you just can't think it through

And that's the way it is, love
Go whichever way you need to go
Nobody can tell you how to build
Your house of seven swords

That's the way it is, love
Together and yet still we're on our own
Nobody can tell us how to build
Our house of seven swords

Shamen won't tell you
The preacher will try to
You could take your time
Take a trip

Let your eyes see hidden things
Your heart beat like a drum
Your eyes see hidden things
Your heart beat like a drum

'Cause that's the way it is, love
Go whichever way you need to go
Nobody can tell you how to build
Our house of seven swords

That's the way it is, love
Together and yet still we're on our own
Nobody can tell us how to build
Our house of seven swords

Oo, oo, oo, ah

That's the way it is, love
That's the way it is, love
Your house of seven swords

That's the way it is, love
Together and yet still we're on our own
Nobody can tell us how to build
Our house of seven swords
