Lyrics

Once upon a time, in this place where I've been told
There was this strange old man who kept saying the same thing
Sitting in his chair (with his) long white curly hair
A remarkable speech again and again
Although it's hard to understand some might say (that) these words (once) were heard everywhere

It's the shining of the sun that makes me wonder
It's the cold wind in my hands
It's this feeling left inside that grows me stronger
With no regrets from yesterday
It's in the falling of the rain that I'm aware
Reminds me I'm alive

Even when he wasn't there his voice was in the air
Such passionate ways just can't be forgotten
Many people claim they approached him in any way
Yet the silence remained again and again
No matter how they tried no other words would be pronounced
There was nothing mrore to say besides this old man's tale
If you choose to understand you might say (that) these words could be heard everywhere

It's the shining of the sun that makes me wonder
It's the cold wind in my hands
It's this feeling left inside that grows me stronger
With no regrets from yesterday
It's in the falling of the rain that I'm aware
Reminds me I'm alive

It's the shining of the sun
It's the cold wind in my hands
It's this feeling left inside
It's in the falling of the rain
Reminds I'm alive
