Sunlight and Darkness
Lifeless world that isn’t dead
A beauty that is left unseen
From the darkness will this world be led?
Night and day, this worlds between
The question stands: Is it dusk or dawn?
Into darkness are we led or have we fled
Do we end or are we born?
Do we rise or fall to this lullaby bed
Woken birds sing sweet praise
Night’s shrouded eye has closed
The sun, its head will raise
What darkness hid is exposed
A glorious world, a new home
With trees and bees and calmed seas
That all sway to the risen suns tone
See how the sun changes life with such ease
Love blooms as flowers open there eyes
Another day one so full of hope
But what will happen when this sun dies
Who will throw us the saving rope?
Sunlight lost as the sun dies
Run hide by the darkness we must abide
And no-one can hear the suns weak cries
Now is when the world plunges to the dark side
