    She rises from the stones
    From the darkening square
    As if she had just risen
    All wet-skinned, to the evening air

    A mystery in stone
    Oh yea
    The secret you’ve never known
    Oh yea

    She’s waiting till we learn how to listen
    She’s waiting
    She’s crying and her teardrops glisten
    We’ve got to listen

    Do you dare to let her in
    Oh yea
    Would you let her touch your skin
    Oh yea

    Would you dare to let her in
    The mystery
    Would you let her touch your skin
    Oh yea
    Oh yea

    Feelings are swirling like snowflakes are falling within me,
    within me
    The window still glows on your shimmering secret and beauty,
    your beauty

    The light only dreamers can see
    Desire and longing in me

    The heavenly moment is hidden in silence and wonder,
    it’s wonder
    A mystery to me, the spell that it lays my heart under,
    sheer wonder

    A moment of heavenly bliss
    So sad when it doesn’t exist

    You are all
    You’re the sunlight
    You are all
    You’re the dark night
    You are all
    You’re the sweetness
    All that is shining
    And all that fades out

    You are all
    You are sadness
    You are all
    You are tears that run from my eyes
    All that is shining
    All that is fading
    You’re the beginning
    And the ending

    You are all
    You are summer
    You are all
    You are winter, spring and fall
    You are all
    The heart wants to cherish
    You are all
    The heart wants to perish

    You are all
    You are sadness
    You are all
    You are tears that run from my eyes
    All that is shining
    All that is fading
    You’re the beginning
    And the ending

    You are all
    You are sadness
    You are all
    You are tears that run from my eyes
    All that is shining
    All that is fading
    You’re the beginning

    Deep inside I feel we’re like
    A thundering wave
    Deep inside I feel we’re like
    A thundering wave
    A howling wind in the darkest night
    A thundering wave

    Deep inside I feel we’re like
    Trees in the wind
    Deep inside I feel we’re like
    Leaves all in the wind
    Blowing under the wild night sky
    Leaves all on the wind

    Deep inside we’re Yin and Yang
    Earth and the skies
    Deep inside we’re Yin and Yang
    The foolish and the wise
    The brightest of days
    And the darkest of nights
    Earth and the skies

    The brightest of days
    And the darkest of nights
    Earth and the skies

    Do Not Weep

    Do not weep about the night
    Though your wings are broken
    Do not weep about the dark
    Though your songs are unspoken
    Do not weep about the sun
    Though it blinded your weary eyes
    ‘Cause it showed you to a different path
    With beams from paradise

    Do not weep my beautiful
    Your candle is still burning
    And I will make my loyal horse
    Take your heavy burden
    Do not weep my beautiful
    ‘Cause darkness is but fleeting
    And you will wake up to a sunlit day
    Where sunlight is ever greeting

    Each hum, each breath, each heartfelt sigh
    Can smooth your melancholy
    Deep inside I do believe
    You’ll find a peace so holy
    Do not weep my beautiful
    ‘Cause darkness is but fleeting
    And you will wake up to a sunlit day
    Where sunlight is ever greeting

    Mercy Of Darkness

    Today the birds haven’t offered a sound
    Seems like the world has stopped going round
    The sun peared through then faded away
    And the children stopped with their children’s play

    The stars all fell down from the heavens above
    And the darkening moon it reminded me of
    How the darkness is merely an absense of light
    Surrounding me with the grace of night

    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Touching me
    Touching me

    Imagining places that I’ve never seen
    The morning of life and the end of all dreams
    And the darkness it still held no evil or fear
    Yes the darkness it still held no evil or fear

    And all I could hear were mysterious sounds
    But so bright and so pure and heavenly sounds
    And nothing had started and nothing had ended
    And nothing was broken and nothing was mended

    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Touching me
    Touching me

    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Mercy of darkness
    Touching me
    Touching me

    Tallest tree
    Climb with me
    Peaceful stream
    Perfect dream
    Do you fly
    Do you fall
    Human child

    Find your way
    Don’t get blinded by the day
    Rain and rumbling thunder
    Shall not hold you in dismay

    Human child
    Be strong
    Human child

    Find your way
    Don’t get blinded by the day
    Rain and rumbling thunder
    Shall not hold you in dismay

    Tallest tree
    Climb with me
    Peaceful stream
    Perfect dream
    Do you fly
    Do you fall

    The band played waltzes
    Request from a stranger
    Who took my hand
    Oh sweet surrender
    Into his arms
    I drifted away
    But then I stood wanting
    Come the light of the day

    Ask me again
    Lord of the dance
    Hold me close
    Be my romance
    ‘Cause this very night
    Is ours alone
    So waltz me in
    To the love that is known

    Take me away
    Sweet lord of dancing
    Speak my name
    As the evenings passing
    I look in your eyes
    There is nothing to say
    So let’s keep on dancing
    Let the music play
