Through the dawning age
We go walking together
Toward the yawning grave
Braving dangers, we make our way
We'll leave our bones in the dust
An untold legend is lighting up

What if I was the last sight you ever saw?
Would you die with a smile on your face?

Well, don't even try to say you will
'Cause you'd hardly recognize the sight
Young are getting old and the summer is cold
And all the birds've been singing at night

When we're dead and gone
Will the mountains remember?
Or just carry on
Moving slow as the forest grows?
And turn our bones into dust
An untold legend is lighting up

When will I reach that light that I'm running to?
When I die will it turn out forever?
There's a fire burning inside of me
When I die will light burn out forever?

Well, don't even lie, I know it will, babe
'Cause the darkness doesn't need the light
All the young are getting old and the summer is cold
All the birds've been singing at night

Well, don't even try to save me, friend
'Cause I know it ain't worth the fight
All the young are getting old and the summer is cold
All the birds've been singing at night
