418 Somewhere [29 August 2001]

As now I listen to
The sweet sound of the wind
That blows across my face
And I look up to the sky
And I see the glimmer of the stars above
You have joined them
As they sparkle in their velvet sky
I wonder why you were chosen
To join Him up above
The souls who had lost
Against the battle of life
If only I could pull you
From the ugly jaws of death
If I could bring you back
Because I know you had
So much more within you
So very much more
Within you
But if tomorrow never comes
I will hold your torch up to the sky
To keep your smile glowing
Till the end of time
And if tomorrow doesn’t show
And the sun won’t shine
Till I’m there by your side
Please don’t come again
Bring her back to us
