I stare out before me with the world spread about me
And the atmospheres cease to be dim.
I hold my breath.
This place that I knew once–it gave me a life once
Is no longer familiar, but strange.
I close my eyes.
This feeling I get from you is pulling me close to you
And I know that it’s time to go.
I take a breath.
This new life you offer me, it now seems to call to me
And I can no longer hide.
I set my feet.
The horizon before me is right where you beckon me
Straight to the rising sun.
Not away from, but towards you, simply ’cause I love you
And now there is no other way.
The air above beckons me, whispering, ‘trust me’
And now it’s too late to turn back.
The air is so cold up here; I cannot see you here
Our distance seems only to grow.
The sky shatters behind you, but somehow, I trust you
You wouldn’t leave me for dead.
Then you catch me; I feel you all around me
You are warm, I’m content, we are safe.
With you right beside me, Nothing can harm me
Now I know I have found you at last.
