"The Phoenix Effect" as written by and Kirsty Hawkshaw Brian Price Judy....
I felt the lightest touch
In the corners of my mind.
I slipped into a dream.
I caught a glimpse of hope
In the shadows of the night.
"Still beauty at the end of all things."

Oh my love, you are inside of me.
And I'll take you all the way.
But I am afraid to see
Your wonders in me displayed.

The wayward hope divorced,
And all the treasures froze.
And I was left alone.

I tried to save the best for last.
I know you're worth it, but I'm not enough.
I've got a standard to match,
While I bide my time on the basement floor.

I've tried to rise above the clouds.
I've got to feel it, but you're not around.
Hold me too close for words, or shut me down.

I threw myself into the endless night.
Give me something real.
I've crossed the line and I can't look back.

    General CommentAny idea what these lyrics are about?
    It'd be easy to interpret some of the lines sexually, but I don't think that's what this song is about.

    What's the Phoenix Effect? Anybody talked to Lyte about it?
