Crystallized

Crystallised

I close my eyes and slip away
And long for change within the air
Hope fills my soul, I realise

I have the sky under my feet
Sun up above, I am complete
Joy fills my heart in Paradise

I sense your hand searching for mine (I am)
Falling through time
I feel your love reaching across (Transcend)
All the years we lost

Someone’s calling me
Echoes of a childhood memory

Eyes open wide as I awake
I sense no change within the air
Hope leaves my soul, I paralyse

This world of pain and suffering
Creeps into me and once again
I mourn the loss of innocence

If I could run away
Back to my innocent days

Someone’s calling me
Echoes of a childhood memory
Someone’s calling me
Echoes of a childhood memory

Passages of time
Buried in the chaos of my mind
Chronicles of life
Concealing a truth I left behind

Passages of time
Buried in the chaos of my mind
Chronicles of life
Concealing a truth I can’t deny

Moon begins to rise
Reflecting on a life once sanctified
Night begins to fall
Voices of my youth, immutable

Memories collide
My scattered soul is almost unified
Thoughts are in full flight
Enveloping a wisdom earned with time

Passages of time
Stripping back the layers of my mind
Chronicles of life
Unraveling a truth which I must find

Passages of time
Stripping back the layers of my mind
Chronicles of life
Unraveling a truth I kept inside

Snow is falling all around
What once was lost has now been found
The life I had to leave behind
Is crystallising in my mind

Reminiscing on the past
A bygone time that could not last
The splintered crystal of my prime
Is now a bell that will not chime

The crystallising thoughts of youth
They flood my mind and show me truth
My soul was free in days of yore
A white seed that once was pure

The snow is falling all around
What once was lost has now been found
The life I had to leave behind
Is crystallising in my mind

Reminiscing on a bygone time
Splintered crystal prime a bell that will not chime
Crystallising thoughts of my faded youth
Flood my mind and bringeth waves of truth
Now the echoes of a false lullaby
Like a black seed in a bed of lies

Splintering the crystal a bell that will not chime
Thoughts flood my mind in truth a faded youth
(The snow is falling)
I reminisce on the past a time gone by
(New life is calling)
Splintering the crystal a bell that will not chime
I will return

Snow is falling all around
What once was lost has now been found
The life I had to leave behind
Is crystallising in my mind

Reminiscing on the past
A bygone time that could not last
The splintered crystal of my prime
Is now a bell that will not chime

The crystallising thoughts of youth
They flood my mind and show me truth
My soul was free in days of yore
A white seed that once was pure

The snow is falling all around
What once was lost has now been found
The life I had to leave behind
Is crystallising in my mind

Reminiscing on a bygone time
Splintered crystal prime a bell that will not chime
Crystallising thoughts of my faded youth
Flood my mind and bringeth waves of truth
Now the echoes of a false lullaby
Like a black seed in a bed of lies

Splintering the crystal a bell that will not chime
Thoughts flood my mind in truth a faded youth
(The snow is falling)
I reminisce on the past a time gone by
(New life is calling)
Splintering the crystal a bell that will not chime
I will return

I have returned
To the springtime in the garden
Seeds are sown, flowers grow
And the child is born again

Filled with delight
And the laughter is contagious
As we dance, as we sing
Celebrating ’til the end

Joy and respite
On the faces of the children
With a smile, realise
That their love will never end

I have received
Affirmation of the spirit
Falling snow takes me home
And the man is whole again

Mind open wide as I awake
I sense a change within myself
Hope feeds my soul I realise

I feel the earth under my feet
Son by my side, I am complete
Pride fills my heart in Paradise

Hearts open wide as I awake
I sense a change within myself
Love feeds my soul I realise

This world of pain and suffering
Ignites in me and once again
Sparks the rebirth of innocence

If I could run away
I’d choose to live for today

Someone’s calling me
Echoes of a childhood memory

The moon will rise
The night will fall
I hold your hand
But you let go

The sun will shine
The snow will thaw
All things must pass
Into the unknown

Escaping the past by embracing the future
Escaping the past by embracing the future
Escaping the past by embracing the future
Escaping the past by embracing the future
