Rise

I'll not look for a light under your door
I'm learning to love myself a little more
Heart to heart, silent touch
I needed too much
But now I don't need at all
Shadows come from behind the wall

They melt as I understand
The patterns etched in the sand
The waves carry the old out to sea
Leaving a new me

Candle flame
Always tracing your name
Along the emerald reaches
Of dreams and distant beaches
A friend is still there
And I still care...

A little bit
I might keep the candle lit
Don't walk away until the last dance
Someday, starships will take a chance
As chains become a broken cord
I'll be on board
