lyrics

Eyes betray the soul and bear its thinking.
Beyond words they say so many things to me.
A stranger here, reborn it seems, awaking wonders deep in me.
If nothing's ventured nothing's gained, so I must seize the day.

It wasn't you, it wasn't me, it wasn't anyone.
It was a day so long awaited and a chance to be as me.
I let the wind run through my hands as I turned to walk away.
In distant days, I long to sense it all so clear.

And fighting time, so hard I pray that this moment lasts forever.
And will the world stay standing still, at least for me.
Through my eyes stare into me. I bear my heart for all to see.
With my face turned to the Sun, there ever standing still.
And fighting time, so much I ask; I will this moment last forever.
Though seasons change, and things come to pass, remain inside of me.
And fighting time, so hard I pray that this moment lasts forever.
and will the world stay standing still, at least for me.

I had no faith before that day in any vow or deed.
Days followed days and years were meaningless.
Despite the wisdom of defeat, I bore my heart for all to see the wonders I'd seen.

(the original version appears on the album "Empires")
