lyrics

O my heart, where are you now?
i'm returning to my home town
O the night has fallen here
while we're sleeping though-out the year

O my god, the sun's gone down
Where has all your light gone now?
under this dirt, i hear those words
I'm giving all of them to my lord
beneath these waves, there is a place
a place for all of you

And I will rejoice for my home and for my family
And i'll lift my voice for you a ceremony

In my dream i was swimming
out in some horrible sea
beneath your glorious bridges
you built to keep above me
so when you cover this island
this island under the sun
i hope you shine down onto me
down on top of everyone

but coming down from that mountain
into the furious dark
you drew the blood of my homeland
and drew the light from its heart
so when i burn all these bridges
i'll keep my eyes on that sun
while all these fires burn brightly
we'll fire our guns all at once

And I will rejoice for my home and for my family
And i'll lift my voice, for you a ceremony

This must be the place where we can stay now,
to get out of the night and from the summer.
