Light for Tomorrow

Rolling over
I have dreamed I saw a diamond in an opening eye
Where have I been
That I just now see the excitement
All around where the brown used to be
Oh these blues and these greens they're for me

Climbing over jagged mountains
I am older
Burning up what He gave me in this life
I'm in armor now
It is light here
There's a side of the mountain aglow
With this all here inside me I know
There's a light for tomorrow

Swallowed up in the night
Maybe nothing in sight
In the morning the sun will be rising
Burning gold on the land
Running blood through my hands
There's a window
A light for tomorrow

You revive me
When you laugh like that
Throw your head back
Let a million blue lights dance beside you
Lay your weight on back
I have seen you
Like a laughing magician of love
Show us all how the magic is done
You're a light for tomorrow

Swallowed up in the night
Maybe nothing in sight
In the morning the sun will be rising
Burning gold on the land
Running blood through my hands
There's a window
A light for tomorrow

They say there's many road left to walk on
This is one I know I belong on
I see the sahdows fall in the red sun
They seem to call my name

And then you take my hand and we run far
Toward the setting sun where we breathe so hard
Two silhouettes as one in the fiery sky
We turn our love into flame
We know that love is the same

Starting over
Like a gentle wind after thunder
Rocking all of the earth in a cradle
We can live again in our wonder
Will the spirit of love conquer all
Well I know that I'll try till I fall
We are lights for tomorrow

Swallowed up in the night
Maybe nothing in sight
In the morning the sun will be rising
Burning gold on the land
Running blood through my hands
There's a window
A light for tomorrow
