Verse 1 (repeated)


Softly shining through my window lonely light

Into the night,

Holding breath in falling silence my old town,

And the remembrance of days gone

Makes all forgotten come alive once more,

Or is it a dream?


Refrain 


Like flakes of snow our days are melting,

Sadness of loss everybody’s facing,

When I can grace in kindness see

Always do believe some day will bring me to the dream.

And the time has no power against me,

Joy is ahead and again awaiting,

When I can grace in kindness see

Always do believe some day will bring me to the dream.


Verse 2


Fleeting moments ever missed will not return

Nor will be caught,

Chose the road myself and followed it alone,

For all the things I’ve gained or lost

Will have to praise or blame myself alone,

Or is it a fate?


Refrain (only the last 4 lines repeated in Coda)
