From the recording Temple Under the Stars


The winds of change are blowing me down
And you became a stone
And I became a river flowing tear upon my face
And I've come to know
Tears are a gateway into another place
That I long to go

Closer to my heart
Broken yet beating
Standing in the dark
The rains tapping rhythm align with my tears

In the dark a friend strikes a match
The flicker of the flame
The hope compassion love and all that it contains
I have felt this too
He said knowing there was nothing he could do
But hold that flame


My mind will rationalize the pain
Tell me stories to try to make it go away
But underneath it all it still remains
Let this water
Stream down my face


A flame flickers here
