Dancing LanternsMature

In a world full of darkness,

There’s a sun to move the light,

Transport hope and joy

And happiness

To the people left in the cold.

 

With the road bending always,

There’s always a guide to see,

Dancing lanterns moving

Right to the sky

To show me the way home.

 

In the night they all come out,

Out there always shining so bright.

The stars showing the way.

 

Follow

The path less traveled.

Follow

The road unpaved.

Follow

The path of most resistance

To follow

The path to purity.

 

When the land has no remorse,

Put your trust to the lights,

Spotlights of night,

Children of

The parents of hope.

 

Seek out the darkest corners

To find the light inside.

Spread whatever you find

Give the most

To receive something in the end.

 

Always a message to say,

Lighting up everything around.

Dancing lanterns to the sky.

 

Follow

The path less traveled.

Follow

The road unpaved.

Follow

The path of most resistance

To follow

The path to purity.

 

As I look into your eyes,

I see hope shining.

And I run to the skies,

Hoping the lanterns shine bright.

 

Take me to the right path,

Show the way to my love.

Give me a moment, some faith,

A commitment to this man,

For eternity.

 

One more time,

Cure the divided

And bring it back together.

One more time,

Piece the puzzle.

And take me far away.

One more time.

 

Always just out of reach,

Something that I need to grasp.

Right up above my head.

 

Once more,

Bring me back

To sweet reality.

Once more,

Open my eyes

To see the world.

Once more.

 

Never leaving a side,

Always right by every boy and girl.

Spotlights in the night.

 

When the sun takes a bow,

And night takes over,

Never fear for

No matter what

There is something to follow.

 

Whatever path you decide,

You will have support

From the guides above,

Shining down,

Wary of our lives.

 

Always a message to say,

Lighting up everything around.

Dancing lanterns to the sky.

 

As I look into your eyes,

I see hope shining.

And I run to the skies,

Hoping the lanterns shine bright.

 

Take me to the right path,

Show the way to my love.

Give me a moment, some faith,

A commitment to this man,

For eternity.

 

Shine on,

Dancing lanterns to the sky.

One more time,

Lights shining bright.

Never leave my side,

Once more.

For eternity.

 

And I look into your eyes,

Hoping to belong.

When you look into mine,

Maybe you’ll see too…

 

Always a message to say,

Lighting up everything around.

Dancing lanterns to the sky.

The End
