Velvet Wings

Ignorant to passing time Reality strikes its deafening chime Unspoken words pass between I and you, my darling queen Lay your weary head to rest With your arms across your chest Now it's time to close your eyes Whisper your final goodbyes Let me go, we'll both be free Cross the wasteland, past the sea Find the path to heaven's light Break away from endless night Embracing tears of bitter pain Falling lightly with the rain Out of reach, I hear your song Alone again, I sing along Let me go, we'll both be free Cross the wasteland, past the sea Find the path to heaven's light Break away from endless night From the night. . . I watched your velvet wings take flight I never saw you so alive So alive I watched your velvet wings take flight I'll never ever say goodbye Never say goodbye Life has ended, you have won Death befriended, pain is gone Fly away into the light Crystal clear and shining bright Close your eyes for final rest Meeting among the blessed Let me go, we'll both be free Cross the wasteland, past the sea Find the path to heaven's light Break away from endless night From the night. . . I watched your velvet wings take flight I never saw you so alive So alive I watched your velvet wings take flight I'll never ever say goodbye Never say goodbye I let you go so you'll be free Cross the path of darkened sea I watched your velvet wings take flight I can never say goodbye Never say goodbye Collaboration with Rebecca Larkin A song, and lyrics
