There are many ways of being in this circle we call life
Is a jewel just a pebble that found a way to shine

Did you save me from an arrow, did you lay me in a grave
Were we broken by the waters, did I lie you in the sun
I dreamed you were a prophet in a meadow
I dreamed you knelt and touched me with a flower

In the brotherhood of creatures; who the father, who the son
Take my hand now to remember when you find yourself alone
And the spirit fills the darkness of the heavens
It lives within a star too far to dream of
It's the fire and the wings that fly us home
