City Of Light

(V1)
Down by the river's edge    
In the city of light      
You've placed your bets      
Made your pledge      
Cross your fingers it's alright      
 
(V2)  
Sinking down I submerge  
Give up my soul to you  
Let go of life  
Oh to emerge  
Rising up to your debut  
 
(Chorus)   
My skin's alive with the sound of fire      
Eyes ablaze in the funeral pyre      
An ashen haze hangs in the air      
Whispers of the dead in my hair      
   
(V3)    
Oh have I done enough      
Break the cycle, leave this place      
Mother may I      
Have I loved      
Enough to ditch time and space      
 
(Chorus)     
My skin's alive with the sound of fire      
Eyes ablaze in the funeral pyre      
An ashen haze hangs in the air      
Whispers of the dead in my hair      
   
(M8)    
Mother    
May I lay us down, rest our weary eyes    
Drift off    
To sleep infinite dreams  
Oh in the fire's gleam  
   
(Double Chorus)    
My skin's alive with the sound of fire      
Eyes ablaze in the funeral pyre      
An ashen haze hangs in the air      
Whispers of the dead in my hair
