Lyrics

The Veil

Squint your eyes and take it in
Here is where we all begin
Oh, for thousands of years, a brilliant mystery
Every line just as it's ever been
Find a picture, tell the tale
Spin the threads into a veil
Oh, some tales we know well, emblazoning history
But every turn holds another that's yet to tell

"I wish I may, I wish I might ..."
Someone, somewhere, is singing this same lullaby
Wonder, sorrow, pain or delight
You are not alone in this tonight

You and I, we're worlds apart
Never tell what's on our hearts
Oh, and here on the ground, we make our own misery
Hold our lines through time, just like the stars

But tonight beneath the same bright sky
Our troubles fade to pure delight
Can we cast off the veil, redraw the lines?
Our own new constellation, for all time …

"I wish I may, I wish I might ..."
Someone, somewhere, is singing this same lullaby
Wonder, sorrow, pain or delight
You are not alone in this tonight
