The eyes are made to see
They see the paths of our lives

The heart is there to feel
It feels the energy of our time

I can see it
I can feel it

This is my waking hour
This is my place
I can hear it
I feel the power in my heart
And is my moment
It is right there
And it's staring me in the face

Disguise and make-believe
I see the end of all demise
The only way to heal
Is in the honesty of your eyes

The fight is done
And who are we to judge
What will become
All the iron armour
Is laid down away
Followed by the heroes
Who belong on rested earth, we pray
We feel the rescue coming near
Within the woken soul to hear
we sense the calm all wrapped in fear
And all the while we heed
The senses way too vast to see
We beg of you to not let go
Our names will provide us with a soul

Falling down
Start again
Life can bring you down
The monumental truth
Of elegance in you

Falling for
A part of who you are
Makes you shine inside

    My InterpretationI can't believe that no one commented on this beautiful song.

    This is one of the best songs by the Gathering. Completely thrilling and captivating, sung so perfectly and with sooo much emotion.

    This song is about finding your place in life and accepting things as they are because what you've found is now perfect for you. You, being the key word.

    I definitely think this song is about feeling comfortable with someone and just relishing the moment, realizing that all surrounding things may not be perfect but what is, is remarkable.
