  • Morning comes too early ,
    And night time 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 bed.

    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 I was but I was found.
    When I heard the stained glass
    Shatter all around me.
    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 have 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.
