Distant Shore



I wake the morning sun, gold as the ring that I wore

Back when we woke as one, on a distant shore...

There life is blooming now, close by the wide oceans roar

If I could buy wings I'd fly to that distant shore



When you think of me, sing a heart-spun song

When it's over, sing it once more

When you dream of me, dream when I'll meet you

On that distant shore



Love sleeping in my arms, eyes like your father before

Born to have your father's need for a distant shore



When you think of me, sing a wide-open song

When it's over, sing it once more

When you dream of me, dream when I'll meet you

On that distant shore



Life is a stormy sea, hearts can be tattered and torn

I still believe peace can be found, on that distant shore



When you think of me, sing an unbroken song

When it's over, sing it once more

When you dream of me, dream when I'll meet you

On that distant shore

On that distant shore
