Though i wait for you here And time will pass Here i will remain Darkness will not take my place here Sigh into the shadows A sight what of isn't really there The sands fall so slowly The glass fills never full I must wait, i must wait I must wait, must i wait? Must i wait? Must i wait? CHORUS We light a candle The light will blind us all A sign of passing The rite unbinds us all Your sight will never leave me Your voice will still be heard Your life will never grieve me Your voice will echo Light soaks through my eyes I can see the sky Here i will remain Darkness will not take my place here Sigh into the shadows A sight what of isn't really there I take a stand, i open my eyes I raise my hands, i see the sky I must wait, i must wait I must wait, must i wait? Must i wait? Must i wait? CHORUS We light a candle The light will blind us all A sign of passing The rite unbinds us all Your sight will never leave me Your voice will still be heard Your life will never grieve me Your voice will echo

Birdsong 06:15
The bottom of this glass Seems so far away The endless glass down which i fall Another day awaken But sleep begins to take its hold The light of dawn fading as i close my eyes The aching numbness in my head pains me The countless numbers of my pain numbs me My faithful attitude towards my lethargy Keeps me here in my cell of apathy My life lived in reverse I recognise this day This day i lived so long ago Another day forsaken As sleep begans to cast its mold The white of dawn fading as i make my ties The birds begin to sing to me And though they lull me to my sleep I wonder if the birds would see That all i wish is to rise from my abyss

A feeling of wonder comes over me The moon, so pale, smiles through the night A sign, a blessing, a light for those who are lost A light, caressing the shadowed land of winter frost The stars peer down upon me Reminding me of where i wish to go The stars appear now to watch me Guiding me with their aethereal glow The wind sighs through autumn leaves The world veiled in black and white And stars blink through barren trees As i pass through the moonlit night An owl calls from across the distance And stirs the thoughts inside my mind The dew upon the grass invigorates my senses I close my eyes and see I see the way the world was meant to be I feel the way world was meant to feel I know this life laid out for me
