lyrics

Oh, light, where shall I go when you are gone?
What will my fantasies become?
From twisted roots they grew
Grasping high to reach for you.
Oh, light, where shall I go when you are gone?

Oh, love, what will I do when you leave me?
Your heart is careless as the sea.
Adrift on the empty blue
I wish for winds that we once knew.
Oh, love, what will I do when you leave me?

Oh, time, what will you make of my disguise?
Will I see through these very eyes?
Sometimes when I see myself
I swear I’m looking at someone else.
Oh, time, what will you make of my disguise?

Oh, Lord, when will you take me from this world?
When will my spirit be unfurled?
It’s been a long time since
I could rest in innocence.
Oh, Lord, when will you take me from this world?
