Lyrics/Notes

Thoughts they found a lovely day
A place that's safe about these clouds
A man can only watch and stand with outstretched hands below these doubts

Oh rest my soul in them cities of gold
As it flies, only by the light

Used to be a space reserved
For God and birds above them clouds
He has had to make some room
for one so new in that house

Oh rest that soul in them cities of gold
As it flies, only by the light

Oh rest my soul Lord
On the banks of that shore
Where the lonely souls departed
Wait for their own
And I will find those lost ones there
When I finally cross those waters and...

Back up on that bird to find
A place to hide above them clouds
A man can only watch and stand with outstretched hands below these doubts

Oh rest my soul in them cities of gold
As it flies, only by the light
