I was sad and I was silent
In shadow of my soul
Ever seeking the horizon
For promises untold.

I dream of silent oceans
And I sing of waters blue
With the crossing of angels
Brought forth to guide me through

To a distant shore so welcoming
where I was free to roam
In a land of ancient mystery
That I could call my own

Chorus:
This is me and you
And we are running
To change the world
Where hope is shining through
Gaia's green and blue
And we are running
To save the world
That we're about to lose

We'll be running
Watch it coming
Green is shining through
Love is rising
Worlds colliding
Green is shining through

(Repeat chorus)

Can you hear the distant beating
Of passion born of old
Reaching out to far horizons
Of prophecy untold

I will wander through the desert
I will seek you in my hand
In the silence of shadows
In palaces of sand

Then a voice called from the wilderness
Whose spirit held the key
To a world and soul united
Forever strong and free

    General CommentWhen the chorus of voices in the background is singing along with Brightman, it reminds me of ABBA, quite a bit.

    I haven't studied the lyrics enough to know what this song is about. It's probably conceptual to the theme of Brightman's album? Or maybe not.
