"Beyond the Iron Gate" as written by and Shindell....
First warm day in all these months
All the sunlight made me drunk
Made me feel like I could run
Made me feel like I was young
So I went out all on my own
I told no one where'd I'd go
Anyway I did not know I only knew I had to go
Out beyond the iron gate
Out there where you said you'd wait
Gotten used to living here
Call it habit call it fear
Though I had glanced your way for years
Til today I'd never dared
But it was easy slipping through
Easy as the morning dew
That lingers til the afternoon
And rises back into the blue
Out beyond the iron gate
Out there where you said you'd wait

There you were right by my side
Reaching down to lift me high
I held on with all my might
Held on to a world made right
Out beyond the iron gate
Out there where you said you'd wait

I heard voices all around Someone lifted off the shroud
I saw my children gather round
Now I will tell them what I found
Out beyond the iron gate
Out there where you said you'd wait
