lyrics

here I am, just the stranger in the storm
wanting just a little warmth
a place to hide my form
so let me stay, once a king but now a knave
give me calm beneath your shade
a quiet place to lay my head down

you're right on time
I was sure to lose my light
it's all I can bear
on the wild ascending stair
beneath the stars, to dream a dream
just a little while with you

and I could sleep, a little while beneath the sheets
with all my strength regained, stand up once and say
that we can't stay, not with a smile or with a wave
we are soon betrayed and lifting up that weight we stumble

but you could stay
though we're born to fall away
it's all I can bear
on the wild ascending stair
beneath the stars, to dream a dream
just a little while with you
