The hills come alive in the autumn mist,
ghostly in their grandeur,
as the souls of the wood God has kissed
sing for the coming day

Dawn-lit children wake up from their silent sleep
Dawn-lit children take up all their hearts can keep
Dawn-lit children make your dreams alive
Send your spirits free

The weary eyes of the children blink
and gaze at the waking flowers
as the sunlight climbs above the brink
of the lazy world below

Dawn-lit children play games well beneath the sky
Dawn-lit children laughing as the world goes by
Dawn-lit children, do you realize
you're souls on a mortal high?
Do you remember when the streets were lined with gold?
Do you remember how the stories would unfold?
Songs of old

Echoes ring out through the evening sky
and shine across the waters
The stillness whispers in your ears at night
to bring the children home

Dawn-lit children gaze up, watch the clouds go by
Dawn-lit children raise up to the open sky
Dawn-lit children, can you realize
you're souls on a mortal high?
Do you see the tracks in the snow
soon become one, then slowly fade away?
Do you feel peace at night?
The stars in the heavens grant you a brand-new life
A new life (x2)
