The Moon and the Dawn

We travel over hillsides through the dark, embittered night
Her silver, lonely moon our only guide
Will we find our way across the harsh, bitter terrain
Our mission very clear, we must regain

A shooting star reflects our hope to move at higher speed
Dismantling a system made to stay stuck on repeat
But we channel all her wisdom through the moonlight and the stars
We can define who we really are

You stand before me, looking down
I know it feels like we’re spellbound
I’ll stay if you’ll stay, we can weather this
We can change the way that this story ends

She brings the dawn to give us all a sign that we remain
In a world where the sun shines every day
We must keep in mind the great strides that we have made
Over seeming endless nights, through the hard rain

You stand before me, looking down
I know it feels like we’re spellbound
I’ll stay if you’ll stay we can weather this
We can change the way that this story ends

I won’t go - if you promise, I’ll promise, I’ll show
I’ll keep giving myself, I will grow
I will hope for your hope and I’ll know
That it’s possible to have a home
Where the moon and the dawn let us know
That tomorrow will bring what we hope
So I won’t go if you won’t go
I won’t go if you won’t go
