Burning Bright

From the album Sea-Change © 2018 Hurricane Music Company

In the garden we were young again
Innocence, runnin’ wild and free like the wind
The ocean as clear as the sky
The light that I saw as a child
Was burning bright, burning bright

The haunted fields where we used to play
On the beach throwing stones out into the bay
The ships that would sail out to sea
Above the sun smiling for me
Was burning bright, burning bright

Then came the thunder and the lightning in the sky
Our hearts asunder as we watch the river dry
Oh the light it is bright, the light that lifts up your night
Is burning bright, is burning bright

The winter came and the light grew dim
In our hearts, we forgot the things we knew then
And sang in our chains like the sea
Above the moon laughing at me
Was burning bright, burning bright

Then came the thunder and the lightning in the sky
Our hearts asunder as we watch the river dry
Oh the light it is bright, the light that lifts up your night
Is burning bright, is burning bright

And the wind she is raging
For a heart that is aching through the night
And the moon she is crying for a star that is dying
Will burn bright, a light that I know
Is burning bright, burning bright
