The Turning of the Seasons

lyrics

By the light of the morning
I gaze upon the shore
As the tide recedes with the daylight
Silver, sparkling waves that restore

It was dark enough to suffocate me
I barely made it through
Over years I pushed and I fought so hard
Found my passion, its flame renewed

Back then it was cold, it was desolate inside
I would have sold my soul to keep you alive

When I dream, sometimes I find you
I can touch you once again
And it brings great comfort to know that
There’s a place where we still live

When you left I thought I'd collapse from the great weight
I had no will to survive
Over time I found a way to move forward
A path where future thrived

It was cold, it was desolate inside
I would have sold my soul to keep you alive

You fade away into the twilight
A haze of misty gauze
I feel your presence this night
I hear your Siren’s call
Your world is brilliant color
You float in currents of
An energy of wonder
Kinetic hives of love
I know we’re from the same source
I knew that all along
But I feel so far from you
The Sirens not enough

It was desolate inside
I would have sold my soul to keep you alive

But I know that the seasons turn as they should
And it was your time, even then I understood
