All Our Lives

Lost, trapped in our travels,
Deep inside ourselves.
Time we have forgotten,
Gone, days drifting on.

All of our lives are here in this moment,
Reaching back across the seas of time.

Memory stirred into motion,
Tears we’ve shed at the wall,
Reach on past these shadows,
With a light that shines through it all.

All of our lives are here in this moment,
Reaching back across the seas of time.

Sleepless and wandering through streets empty of souls,
Stripped by the northern wind while we were far from home.

Come sit at our table,
Drink the cup filled with wine.
See through the eyes of the children,
Sing with us into the night.

Li li li li…

Come sit at our table,
Sing with us into the night.
Li li li li…

The first song written by Michael and Helene as a team.
