Closer to the Light
There you go Swimming deeper into mystery Here I remain Only seeing where you used to be Stared at the ceiling 'Til my ears filled up with tears Never got to know you And suddenly you're out of here Gone from mystery into mystery Gone from daylight into light Another step deeper Into darkness Closer to the light Walked outside Summer moon was nearly down Mist on the fields Holy stillness all around Death's no stranger No stranger than the life I've seen Still I cried Still I begged to get you back again Gone from mystery into mystery Gone from daylight into light Another step deeper Into darkness Closer to the light
