lyrics

On one dark and sacred night
when they met to say goodbye
sat upon a cliff above the sea
He looked into her teary eyes
then up to the starry skies
and said there's so much more here than you think
I have seen
My road indeed it has been cruel
but i am still alive and you'll
see me die long before i loose
Though the world would hold me down
I have been given a crown
but finding jewels to fill it is up to me
so i seek
Oh gimme that sunrise
I weathered the cold night to see
Oh under the stars I wait for first light to gleam
So don't cry for me
save your tears for the mean
who confuse the battle for the war
and although i dismay
despair this soul will never take
cause victory was written long ago
The darkest hour it becomes
the say just before the sun
breaches the horizon like a king
so i sing
Oh gimme that sunrise
I weathered the cold night to see
Oh under the stars I wait for first light to gleam
