Golden forest golden lake
I will find reason a place to begin

Watching the sunrise on the silver shores
It will be a good day
Sometimes I forget
Astounding winter skies
Peace that it brings to me, my naked eyes

Making me free again

A thousand reasons singing to me
Realizing it all

Learning is power making me free
Giving me good reason

Make me believe again
(Take the river)
(To the sea)
(Come tomorrow)
(Will be free)
Like a river
Time feels so much closer now

Clear through the sky
I sing of each season
This will be a good day

Make me believe again

Making me free again
(Come tomorrow)

Making me free again
Making me see again

Making me free again

Making me see again
(Come tomorrow)
(Take the river)
