Oh teacher take me thru the maze of love

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Your knowledge is unlimited my experience is small
With you, I can begin until I’ve learnt it all
Its labyrinthine halls are awesome in the endless corridors
The windowless rooms are frightening, what’s behind those locked doors

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Once I followed a phantom who was dancing in a daze
Beneath the stars, she left me wandering in the maze
With my heartbroken and my dreams in shreds
I never found the exit from the nightmares in my head

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Take me safely to the centre, guide me to the heart
Return me back to safety back to where we start
With the cross in my left hand, I will dance
With the sceptre in my right hand, I will sing

Once there was a Minotaur who lived behind the trees
Who accepted me as a sacrifice in his labyrinth overseas
He locked me in his dungeon where I heard the screams
Of all the burning offerings created from my dreams

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Leave not from veins a trail of blood
Stud the sun with diamond stars leaf the moon with gold
Guide me through the storms when loves image turns to mud

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Drag me on a burning bier drawn by a unicorn
Around the atlas of her face and the pitfalls of her form
Take me to her heart of hearts where the world was born

Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love
Oh teacher, take me thru the maze of love

It’s you, my love,

It’s you, my love,
It’s you who are the teacher
It’s you, my love
It’s you who art the preacher

Right down all history
Two sides of love are sown
Together as the human form
Made of water, made of stone

Preach to me with your reason
About what’s right and wrong
How love must abide by rules
How you must be strong

Then teach me the reality
That breaks all rules apart
And heals all of the memories
Inside a broken heart

It’s you, my love
It’s you who are the teacher
It’s you, my love
It’s you who art the preacher

Teach to me the reality
That breaks down all the walls
And makes a bed of roses
From the springtime to the fall

Building walls around the cities
To save the ones within
To fight off the invaders
Made of madness, made of sin

Two song lyrics inspired by Leonard Cohen a bit.
