Morning comes too early And nighttime falls too late And sometimes all I want to do is wait The shadow I've been hiding in Has fled from me today
I know it's easier To walk away Than look it in the eye But I will raise a shelter to the sky And here beneath this star tonight I'll lie She will slowly yield the light As I awaken from the longest night
Dreams are shaking set sirens waking up tired eyes With the light the memories all rush into his head
By a candle stands a mirror of his heart and soul she dances She was dancing through the night above his head
And walking to the window He throws the shutters out against the wall
And from an ivory tower hears her call "Let light surround you"
It's been a long, long time He's had a while to think it over In the end he only sees the change Light to dark Dark to light Light to dark Dark to light
Heaven must be more than this When angels waken with a kiss Sacred hearts won't take the pain But mine will never be the same
He stands before the window His shadow slowly fading from the wall
And from an ivory tower he hears her call "Let the light surround you"
Once lost but I was found When I heard the stained glass shatter all around me I sent the spirits tumbling down the hill But I will hold this one on high above me still She whispers words to clear my mind I once could see but now at last I'm blind
I know it's easier To walk away Than look it in the eye But I had given all that I could take And now I've only habits left to break Tonight I'll still be lying here Surrounded In all the light
