Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
 Though the side of my heart has left me again

 Standing in my broken heart all night long
 Darkness held me like a friend when love was lost
 Looking for the land that's hidden in the cross 
The finders love
I know I loved you too much
Ill go alone to get through 

I hear Rosetta singing in the night 
Echo's of lighting shine like stars after there gone
And tonight shes my guide as a girl on the moon
With the music up above
