Sunlight 03:50
Shake the dreams from your hair With the sunlight coming down And you can’t be what you were When the sunlight hits the ground All my kingdom lies Subject at my feet But a moment in the light I cannot quite keep All the spires rise To open in the sun When I have closed my eyes And missed the moment come Shake the dreams from your hair With the sunlight coming down And you can’t be what you were When the sunlight hits the ground Yes my kingdom lies Subject at my feet But a moment here with you I cannot quite keep And so it turns to stone As you look away The beauty of the moment Is now locked away But I won’t close my eyes To miss the moment run The beauty we remembered Is opened in the sun Shake the dreams from your hair With the sunlight coming down And you can’t be what you were When the sunlight hits the ground

I remember when I first froze I was buried in those winter snows I couldn't move or turn about My love was gone and I was crying out That oh what I couldn't do Was hold on love to you Though I wanted to So I held on in the cold With my shadow growing tall For I wanted you always And I wanted you to stay Why does my sun go down? I feel you now Though I couldn't then The sun it took its time with me And though it thawed me out and set me free With what I stood to lose or stood to gain I knew full well that I'd freeze again Oh what I couldn't do Was hold on to you Though I wanted to So I held on in the cold While the world about me froze For I wanted you always And I wanted you to stay

I know, but I don't got a reason That you and I could hold up a sky And I felt, when you're moving and breathing That just that could up the sky Cause we can't run back again to stay We only flow one way.... But when you say My heart is alive I know, I know And I reply I won't let our love die Cause I know, I know The days run, and they won't come back again Time flows out to the sea You and I love, we won't be coming back But I hold you close to me For we can't run back again to stay We only flow one way.... But when you say My heart is alive I know, I know And I reply I won't let our love die Cause I know, I know

When I was young, I played my tambourine To the songs that were sung Out there on the streets. I would laugh with my boys And cheer the serenade That would spill from the bars With all the games we played. But I didn't know myself And I didn't know it then That the leaves that were falling I wouldn't see again So I laughed with my friends And we cheered the serenade It spilled from our hearts to fall away And soon I learned To play a game of hearts. It was all I could do But fumble with my cards I asked you for a rematch And for you to shuffle fair But the time was marching on..... So I drank with my friends And we cheered the coming day It spilled out from our hearts to fall away There's a fire in heaven But ashes at our feet So I fled from the banquet Stumbling to the beat And though I didn't know myself And I didn't know it then All those I loved I wouldn't see again So I drank at last call And I cheered the closing day And I spilled from their hearts to fall away Lethe's lights are all burning low..... I'm burning low.... Lethe's lights are all I can know....
