Lyrics
I chased the sun until the sea, I must confess
And then I watched it slip away
I found a book there that said everything is blessed
Night is just the other side of day

And then the moon came 'bove the mountain
And the tide came out to play
The book had no map, left me standing by the waves
To lose myself in the ebony of space

I built a fire in that stark and distant place
I fed it slowly like a child
Within the flames I saw the outlines of your face
You spoke to me for a while

But I don't know what you're saying
You seem so far away
You stayed with me until the eastern sky grew light
Then you vanished in the morning rain

You don't have to leave me wondering
You could make it plain as day
Your face is hidden but I know your light can shine
Why not let it shine today?
