Just wait until it's over
Wait until it's through
If Orpheus’s anxiousness gets the best of him, and he chooses to look back at Eurydice (spoiler alert: he does), Eurydice will descend back into hell (spoiler alert: she does).
Both of them know the risks that are at hand during their journey, and all Eurydice asks is that he comfort her with his natural abilities. Vocalist Win Butler may be comparing this feeling to the duties he has to himself and his new family to provide for them through music.
