Ivory Fields - Lyrics

As the summer breeze comes sweeping through the doorway
A shadow darkens across the evening sky
As I'm sitting here just thinking bout
The place where you and I
Crossed our paths and built this ship to last

As dawn turns to day and day to dusk
Ivory Fields may gray as winters pass
We said we'd brace it all, steadfast but
Promises never lasts
With the things we've seen, o what could this have been

When she said those words Eternity had passed
Captain of this ship before the mast
Memorized the contours of her face, the first time and the last
Return me my sight
Return me to the light

I never thought it'd hurt to be in this deep
Can't show I'm sad, o none can see me weep
But now I skim the very surface of my consciousness and sleep
In this prison inside me, waiting to break free

When she said those words Eternity had passed
Captain of this ship before the mast
Memorized the contours of her face, for the first time and the last
Return me my sight
Return me to the light

You told me someday
I'd find someone new
But what's it mean
If she's not you?
Well, someday
Even the purest emotion must fade

Ooo

Return me my sight
Return me to the light
