FAR AWAY, ACROSS THE SEA, A PENCIL IN HIS HAND,
A SOLDIER WAGED HIS BATTLE WITH DESPAIR
SOMEBODY CAME AND SAID THE WAR WAS OVER,
BUT HE LEFT HIS NOTEBOOK THERE...
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WINDING PATH, HIS ROAD DROPPED OUT OF SIGHT
AND HE HAD TO MAKE HIS WAY BACK HOME, WITH JUST THE FAINTEST LIGHT
MY FATHER WROTE FORGOTTEN SONGS THAT NO ONE EVER HEARD
HE SANG TO DROWN OUT SORROW IN MELODY AND WORD
I AM MY FATHER’S DAUGHTER – I HAVE MUSIC IN MY VEINS
MY BONES ARE MADE OF VERSES
AND MY HEART BEATS MY REFRAIN.
I PUT MY LYRICS IN A BOOK AND I KEEP THEM OUT OF SIGHT
AFRAID I’LL FIND OUT WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN
THE DEVIL’S IN THESE ADVERBS AND THESE ADJECTIVES
BUT THERE’S SALVATION IN BETWEEN.
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WINDING PATH MY ROAD DROPS OUT OF SIGHT
BUT I’M BOUND TO MAKE MY WAY BACK HOME CARRYING THIS LIGHT.
AND EVEN IF IT’S ONLY FOR A TINY DROP OF TIME
WE MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
