lyrics

One of us will be alive by the breaking of the dawn
I'm resolved that person will be me
With his blood I pay the tithe so that I may be reborn
Unabsolved, the waves will receive me

Blow, wind, blow!
Fill my lungs with shouting
Burn, sky, burn!
Stoke my heart with fire
Flow, rain, flow!
Wash away my doubting
Turn, earth, turn!
With you I'll conspire

He said:
"I had never seen the sky 'til I gazed into your eyes
From tonight our lives start in earnest
Never will I leave your side, for when two worlds collide
There's a spark that kindles a furnace

Blow, wind, blow!
Fly us to the heavens
Burn, sky, burn!
Fill our days with sun
Flow, rain, flow
Quench our thirst forever
Turn, earth, turn!
With you we will run"

I'm the reason he's alive so his life I shall reclaim
One more stab of pain won't undo me
I made every sacrifice but her beauty stole my light
She's so bright, he's looking right through me

Blow, wind, blow!
Fill my lungs with shouting
Burn, sky, burn!
Stoke my heart with fire
Flow, rain, flow!
Wash away my doubting
Turn, earth, turn!
With you I'll conspire

One of us will be alive by the breaking of the dawn
I'm resolved that person will be me
