whistle and hold
your head high
as you walk on the river bank
of shining
stones from the sky.

i have no breath
i still have
always loved you

i wish i could've stay
comes too soon
and the world didn't
stop turning to
let me stay
just one more moment

you searched the earth
while i reigned in the skies
and i can't help but
shed these tears of acid rain.

keep believing
in love
when the
fades to grey
and the raven
sings a song
look up the clouds
and i'll come back.
