I feel your shimmering eyes into my soul,
And your life is all around my time; now don't you know?
Every time your sunrise drives my night away,
It makes my lifetime soar in circles,
Like the swallows wheeling in the day.
Now our time can start to run;
The hourglass has just begun.
Life was meant for having fun
As we were meant to be.

I've been living blind in one-eyed land,
Among those kings I thought were grand,
Till time had opened up my eyes
And there I found, to my surprise,
That life without you
Was empty as a nest in winter light.
Strolling in the garden,
Sunshine on a California day,
With you by my side.
The tears we've cried have dried and gone away.
The darkness of the northland,
In wintertime, has all began to run
Through the deltas of a passing sorrow,
Now that you and I are really one.
Now we're flying down the way
Where all our hopes have time to stay,
And we can marvel at the time
That floats us in it's path.

[Chorus x 2]
