The ticktock of time allows me to see
An owl turn to an echo
The butterfly to a cocoon
A swan to Ugly Duckling, ruling to an ocean

The dead times awake
As I've been call myself to yesterday
A flower has fallen its petals
Out of the petals a cradle I will

My cradle rocks with the waves of time
The time of beauty will never be the same
Oh, little girl, as thou must no leave
Please take me, take me with thee

Now I hear my mother from the deep
Sing me a lullaby of eternal sleep
Wilt blow wee plant that last to recall
As in silence we sing to reborn

    General CommentI cant believe no one has commented on this beautiful song.

    An owl turn to an echo should read : "A Howl to an echo"

    I think some other words are not correct but im not sure.

    I love this song, it is amazing. April 08, 2008   Link

    General CommentI think this song is about the passing of time, hence references to the cradle and the beginnings of life up until death. It's also about how time can change things - eg. Ugly duckling. Very pretty song.
