Lyrics

Can’t quite believe what I see with my eyes
so I have to reach out
check that it’s there.
It’s only my life but it’s good now
beautiful and kind now
and gentle and I’m more wise now.

And how could it all work out?
How could it be this fine now?
Look at my life I survived somehow
and I’m building a brand new home.
Still the tears of betrayal are just endless
but keeping them alive would be useless
hurts nobody else but me.
It’s time to see things differently.

I was finding my way when the snow came down
covering over my tracks
on the path to where I belonged
was now a place that time had moved on.
So I look above at the stars tonight
so crisp and clear and there’s no moonlight
the air is cold on my face but I’m warm inside
and there’s a fire in my new home.

I look outside at the snow tonight
it’s barely light by my candle light.
My lover she calls for me
draws the fire deep in my soul.
And how could it all work out?
How could it be this fine now?
Look at my life it’s so good somehow
and I’m building a brand new home.

Can’t quite believe what I see with my eyes
so I have to look twice
check that it’s there.
It’s only my life but it’s good now
beautiful and kind now
and gentle and I’m more whole now.
