lyrics

IN THE EARTH'S FADING LIGHT

It’s a matter of life
In the beak of a dove
It’s a fountain of stars
Releasing their love
In the cascading light, I see you

Through the sleet and the ice
My way is revealed
Like a terrible vast
And mine-laden field
I will fight for my soul and I will be healed

Many nights there’s a glow
But I cannot read
If only my heart
Could bring what I need
From this window so high, carry me

It’s a moment of choice
There will be no command
Just silver and gold
Or dirt in our hands
Like a fledgling must fly, so must I

You have given me clues
Precluding my fall
I am given to fear
But you are my all
In the earth’s fading light, hear you my call

Fly, fly fair Pleiades
Place your kiss upon my brow, take me now
