all Arcane Sun lyrics

Canto I (the search)
Many seasons have passed since first my search began,
with each night came a quest....
to escape from a world where I could find no peace, only despair.
Each night brought a sense of hope and each day, despair.
Some nights I would catch a glimpse that would soon disappear
among a myriad of thoughts and images,
but still I would wade through
and seek what I knew was waiting to welcome me.....
Elysium to Greece,
Byzantium to Yates.
Few brief glimpses had strenghtened
my desire and the lust for my own paradise,
gave strenght to my withering soul.back to top
Canto II (the arrival)
I stood and watched,
but I could not believe,
I was new to this beauty...
why had I been before?
The metallic glowing blue,
provoked memories long dormant
and the deep red clouds flowed
with the elegance of a queen.
I was so far, yet the ambiance
was so strong and I could feel my soul trying......
Trying to break free from
this restricting mortal vest.
Soon my spirit flies through the night
like sand flowing through my fingers.
Here I sense real peace,
sinking into the clouds,
I can forget the old world and despair no more.
Sunrise brought a new day and
I was drenched in my sun,
it's warmth rejuvenated my once withered soul.
Here I sense real peace,
is this my paradise.back to top
Sundreched (beneath the skies we sought)
A season died,
no tears were shed,
my eyes turned gold,
there was fire in the sky.
We were sundrenched.
My world turned green
and breathed as a new-born,
my eyes turned gold
there was fire in the sky.
We were sundreched.back to top
The Promise (a culmination in sorrow)
In a pool of tears,
that are my own,
I am sitting still crying.
So many years
and still no sign,
so many years I am waiting.
You promised me you would wait for me,
but now as the sun sets once more,
I am thinking that you have forgotten me.back to top
