Track Name: Foreign Sky
There was a time when I lived by your secrets
There was a light through an open door
I could have told you that I found no regrets
Your sun is shining from a foreign sky

The shadow blurs in the water is rising
The dam is breaking and the line is high
I'm overflowing I'm overflowing
Your sun is shining from a foreign sky

No waiting now you come in go
I'm winding down this time I know

That you shine like the light on the harbor
It's always there though I never know why
All dark confusion and rain till I see you
You're the sun is shining from a foreign sky

No waiting now
You come in go
I'm winding down this time I know

That you're waiting at the border
I know you just to cross that line a million miles away
You take the words I'll take the symbols
I still have more to say a million miles away, so far away

No waiting now dreams come and go
I'm winding down this time I know

In from the outside of your smile is the reason
The last impression that I can call mine
I live alone now where nobody knows me
Your sun is shining from a foreign sky

No waiting now I’m on my way
Nowhere to go no words to say
No waiting no, never too soon
I’m finding you, this waiting room
Every detail comes into view
Closing my eyes I'm close to you
I'm tumbling down, I'm shouting out
Things lost and found no waiting now
No waiting now, now waiting now
