lyrics

You know I went blind years ago,
from staring at a woman in flames
I was a kid with no shame
and she stood naked in that cave
and now all I see is her silver silhouette
and now all I see is her silver silhouette

There is a spirit who crosses these woods at night
I only know him from the sound of his wings
beating the air, breaking branches, scattering the leaves
sometimes he calls to me, but I just haven’t got the ears to hear

In these quiet and snowed in woods
among the withered leafless trees
you may see by the light of a forgotten day
a spotless owl spread his wings
fly away toward a purple gleam on the horizon
fly away toward a purple gleam and you can hear him sing

O, open your eyes
this world is not so black and white
there is a color that will not die
the dawn of the day that never ends
the dawn of the day that never ends
the dawn of the day that never ends
