  • I was stained, with a role,
    In a day not my own
    But as you walked into my life
    You showed what needed to be shown
    I always knew, what was right
    I didn't know that I might
    Peel away and choose to see
    With such a different sight

    And I will never see the sky the same way,
    And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday
    And I will never cease to fly if held down,
    And I will always reach too high cause I've seen,
    Cause I've seen twilight

    Never cared never wanted
    Never sought to see what flaunted
    So on purpose so in my face
    Couldn't see beyond my own place
    It was so easy not to behold what I could hold
    But you taught me I could change
    Whatever came within these shallow days

    And I will never see the sky the same way,
    And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday
    And I will never cease to fly if held down,
    And I will always reach too high cause I've seen,
    Cause I've seen twilight

    As the sun shines through it pushes away
    And pushes ahead
    It fills the warmth of blue
    And leaves a chill instead and
    I didn't know that I could be
    So blind to all that is real
    But as illusion dies
    I see there is so much to be revealed

    And I will never see the sky the same way,
    And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday
    And I will never cease to fly if held down,
    And I will always reach too high cause I've seen,
    Cause I've seen twilight

    I was stained, by a role,
    In a day not my own
    But as you walked into my life
    You showed what needed to be shown
    I always knew, what was right
    I didn't know that I might
    Peel away and choose to see
    With such a different sight

    And I will never see the sky the same way,
    And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday
    And I will never cease to fly if held down,
    And I will always reach too high cause I've seen,
    Cause I've seen twilight
