a Spirit in Time
The drums ,
You hear the drums
you more than feel their beat.
they taunt you with the past somehow
you know it in your feet.
you see yourself around the fire
dancing 'neath the moon
who you were and who you are
and who you will be soon.
The smoke,the mist the burning flame
how does the rhythm know your name?
you must go back from whence you came
back to that dark lagoon .
Back to the flicker in the light
the instant that must be set right
she's waiting there for you tonight
beside the dark lagoon.
to resurrect a love gone by
the year too soon for you to fly ,
the spirits gave you one more try
to find the Lost Lagoon.
You travel time to find the place
where you can see your lover's face
your memory has found the trace,
back to the Lost Lagoon
