lyrics

As we embrace the final dawn
The rain upon our face, tells of sullen times
Wash away the tears, ring the death knell
Enamored by it's chime

I've seen it inside their eyes
It was carried in their mother's arms
To nurture a fire soon to burn - on and on

The virulence before the storm, there are secrets to be born
Can you feel their heavy hearts?
Like anchors of sinking ships

As we embrace the final dawn
The rain upon our face, tells of sullen times
Wash away the tears, ring the death knell
Enamored by it's chime

I've seen it inside their eyes
It was carried in their mother's arms
To nurture a fire soon to burn - on and on

This bounding main - A silence left to comfort
These wind-capped waves - Torn seafaring hearts

Until we reach the shore, can you hold this close to yours?
This burden, the dark
Under the weight of the world

We've come this far
Guided by vagrant stars

When all warmth fades, cold the garden of night
By lantern's shine, we brave this search of light

Until we reach the shore, can you hold this close to yours?
This burden, the dark
Under the weight of the world

The bridge, the flame that follows me until the end
Haunted, our path, they'll know our name at last

Until we reach the shore, can you hold this close to yours?
This burden, the dark
Under the weight of the world
