Oh Orpheus!

If only you had had a little more faith, Orpheus

I was walking right behind you

If only you had had a little more faith, Orpheus

I was coming from the underworld to join you.

That fateful moment

When overpowered by doubt

You sealed our fates

By turning your head—

I can’t help but think

How splendid our story would have been

If only you had had a little more faith.

For a guy like you

Who journeyed to the underworld

With nothing to defend himself

And just a lyre to play…

I fail to understand how does a guy like you

Does the one thing he was asked not to

And ends up living so miserably

Till the end of his days.

Tell me, Orpheus, was it the ghosts who got into you

Or the dreaded dog of Hades distracted you from your quest

For you knew what you had to do and you did it all the way

Just at the last minute, when we were so close—

You, lacking of faith, threw it all away.

If only you had had a little more faith, Orpheus

We would have been together today

If only you had had a little more faith, Orpheus

The hearts of men would not so easily go astray.
