Sunset at the Northpole 14

Lyrics > Sunset at the Northpole 14

SHIFTING SANDS

I

I ARRIVED IN OLD ST. PAUL, IN THE SILENCE OF THE NIGHT

LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO LIE, WHEN THE LANDSMAN STEERED ME RIGHT

HE TOLD ME OF A ROOM, WHERE MY SOUL WOULD GET RENEWED

WHEN I CAME UPON THE RED DOOR, I SAW A FACE THAT I ONCE KNEW


II

I TRAVELED FROM NEW ENGLAND,  A PLACE APART FROM YOURS

WHERE THE SEASONS CHANGE THEIR COLORS AND WE DIDN’T LOCK OUR DOORS

ON A WESTBOUND ROAD I WANDERED LOOKING FOR A TIME OR PLACE

I NEEDED TO LEAVE MY PAST BEHIND, TO BE SHELTERED BY A TOUCH OF GRACE

Bridge

WHY DID YOU LEAVE?

IS THERE A REASON YOU NEVER CALLED?

WAS IT SOMETHING THAT I SAID OR DID,

THAT MADE OUR LIVES SO COLD?

WILLYOU EVER TELL THE TRUTH

OR WILL I BE LEFT ALONE TO GUESS?

AS I LOOK DEEP INTO YOUR EYES

I STILL FIND NO EVIDENCE


CHORUS

I WANT TO PART YOUR SEA AND ENTER, SEARCHING FOR THE PROMISED LAND

AND WHEN OUR JOURNEY ENDS, I WILL WALK ON SHIFTING SANDS

I CANNOT FIX THE HOUR, CAN’T REMEMBER THE TIME OR WHEN

WE WERE ALREADY IN THE MIDDLE, BEFORE I KNEW IT DID BEGIN


III

I WALKED INTO YOUR ROOM, YOU ASKED ME “HOW YOU’VE BEEN?”

I SAID “SEARCHING FOR A REASON, TO WALK YOUR WAY AGAIN”.

YOU LOOKED JUST LIKE A WOMAN, FROM A PLACE THAT I ONCE KNEW

WHO STOOD ME ON MY HEAD, AND THEN SHE SUDDENLY WITHDREW

Repeat Bridge


CHORUS

I HOPE THERE IS A HEAVEN, IN THE SPACE BEYOND THE SKY

WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE PEACE OF MIND, THAT ELUDED YOU IN THIS LIFE

I WANT TO PART YOUR SEA AND ENTER, SEARCHING FOR THE PROMISED LAND

AND WHEN OUR JOURNEY ENDS, I WILL WALK ON SHIFTING SANDS
