I’ve seen the universe, through to the stars beyond
There’s a deep darkness, she’s gone, she’s gone
I saw her smile, crack from the pain
There was a sorrow, she caught it tomorrow
I’ve seen the moon, through the burning sun
Where’s that planet, she’s walking on
I saw her eyes, crying tears of sand
Where’s that beach, she’s lying on
I’ve seen the ocean, through the broken coral
Where’s that ship, she’s sailing on
I saw her body, serene and frail
Where the ashes, she’s covered in
I’ve seen the earth open up, swallowing the multitude whole.
Where’s that chasm, she’s falling through.
I saw her gentle soul, disappear out of sight.
Where’s that secret heaven, she’s flying to
I’ve seen the land, go through violent storms
Where’s the winds of time, she’s spread upon
I saw her heart, her love, for all of you, and I
Where’s that dream, she’s left us to find
