In the dresser he kept all the letters
All the prizes of lovers gone wrong
As the rain spat down
The new love he found
Lay sleeping while he wrote this song

And the blue candle burned in the small room
As he stared at the form in his bed
Like a flower in bloom
She lit up the room
And his life had begun again

Time is not such a boundary
Not a river that cannot be crossed
And her advent into his small kingdom
Has canceled the loss

Mutual accolades and freedom
What great love can grow from respect
His hand on her sides
Ethereal rides
It was like they had never left

In a small museum in a small town
He found the jewels he would use for her crown
The blond king and queen
She would wear his ring
And he would sing her songs

Time is not such a boundary
Not a river that cannot be crossed
And her advent into his small kingdom
Has canceled the loss

But her beauty is more than her long hair
Or her face or her lips or her skin
And the royal gatekeeper to her kingdom
Has let him in

    General CommentHaving had the pleasure speaking with Cary Pierce (the writer of this song) several times he discribed what it's he mean by it. My feeling seems to have hit pretty close. ADVENT, means a begining. The song tells a story of the beginning of true love and how those in love feel like they live the life of royalty. It also makes reference to the difficulty of the long drawn out process of finding true love.
