LYRICS
Shoulder

Shedding time is our discovery
Chasing crowns in the shinelight leaves the world crossing over me
Asleep, we remain the dignified
We steal to feel

Oh, the carelessness of life
So carefree
How I love to see the sea and the sky
The sky of a brand new day
And how I love to hear the cries of a newborn baby child
How I love to smell the blossoming flowers of spring
How I love to touch the gleaming petals upon them
How I love to taste what cannot be replaced
What I love so much -- it cannot be taken away
Please don't take it away

A shoulder for my head
I need a shoulder
I need a shoulder for me to rest my head on

Oh, the wings of life
Floating, flying by
Soaring with the winds to begin a new life reborn
For this one lies tattered and torn, wounded and worn
I see the sea and the sky
I hear a newborn baby's cries
I smell the blossoming flowers of spring
I touch the gleaming petals upon them
I taste what cannot be replaced
What I love so much -- it cannot be taken away
Please don't
Please don't take it away, away...
