Midnight again, the deepest hour

And I am drawn away from my dreams

To the sounds of your soul

Inside the silence that lingers

Racing over time, to seduce my very being


Music that I feel, more than I hear

Dances on air through the darkness

Seeking me on golden wings

And without saying a single word

It reaches me and calls my name


Opening doors that remained closed to me

I have waited for such a long time

For you to come and seek me out

Unlocking the secrets that whisper the truth

And to bring hope to a place with no reason


You have always been just outside of my grasp

Standing in the shadows, hiding your face

But now that you have stepped into the light

I can see that I have always known you

In my heart, somehow, for a thousand years


Anticipation turns to rapture as we touch

Igniting a passion that will burn forever

Creating a pure and innocent melody

That will capture the essence of life

And complete the final note to love's song.
