Now as the evening sun sets on you healer Your day is over, your light is fading away at last And the wolves howl after the healer Fighting for pieces, bits of his shattered remains All who could know it First they curse you then they warn you so Then they use you and then they go on 'Til they curse you and there's no more And they turn off all the light that you were giving away And they burn off but they just don't seem to shine Is it all gone, is there no one who will shine? Don't let the secret out, it's much too early They are not ready but the hour is close at hand For the wolves of the world are still hungry But they are dying, there is no healing for them You will know by the signs you have seen before In your seeds of life there are more to come The healer was not alone He will turn on all the light that they've been hiding away Turn on the light He will burn off Come on and shine you diamond shine They will turn on all the light that they've been hiding away They've got to turn on the light They will burn off Come on shine you diamond shine There are a million eyes watching the world tonight Have we learned nothing? Do we merit another chance? By what grace have we earned some redemption Ten million saviors, ten billion angels of man Those who know that such miracles can be so They arrive because they must go And lead believers to bring it home
