The paths we've learnt to wander
All narrow, winding, steep
we've walked them lone and sightless
Over hills and valleys deep
As lights around us dim and die
We stand to fight again
Will you run into the darkness
Or refuse to meet the end?

When the sun has left the sky
Will you still be flying high?
Or will you be the one who wouldn’t even try?

The stars are all extinguished
And the sky is black and cold
The sun is but a memory
Of fire and shining gold
As we walk into the twilight
With no spark to light the way
Just remember now to keep your course
At the dying of the day

The road that lays before you
The horizon in your sights
May look like that behind you,
in the shadow of the night
But let yourself go on now
And follow every star
For every star’s a rising sun
And the light has travelled far

When the earth comes round again
Will you be holding the flame?
Or will you be someone who couldn’t take the pain?

The fire it keeps smouldering
Just waiting for the fuel
And when the nights are colder, we'll
Keep walking by the moon
The flame was always burning
The embers always bright
The wheel it keeps on turning towards the light

The fire on the horizon
A burst of golden flame
Cast of your sins and spread your wings
And tell the world your name
Watch the clouds be torn apart
A beacon through the haze
The light inside of everything
The candle or the blaze
