Well they left then in the morning
A hundred pairs of wings
In the light moved together
In the colors of the morning
I looked to the clouds
In the cirrus sky and they'd gone

Across the marshes
Across the fields below
I fell through the vines
And I hoped they would catch me below

If only to take me with them there
Tell me the part that shines
In your heart on the wind

And the reeds blew in the morning
Take me along to the places
You've gone when my eyes looked away
Tell me the song that you sing
In the trees in the dawning
Tell me the part that shines
In your heart and the rays of love forever
Please take me there
