Different Wings Lyrics

22. Different Wings (2:44)
[Narration:]
Like the sphinx knows silence
And the pyramids know time
Like Sisyphus knew regret
As he thought about his crime

As Julius knew betrayal
As Judas knew the kiss
And David with his nervous hand
Knew when not to miss

And Helen in her blindness
Knew better how to touch
And Lincoln in his wisdom
Knew the angels in each of us

Like the Delphi knew tomorrow
Like crocodiles know the Nile
Like Michelangelo knew stone
A mother knows her baby’s smile

Then she placed her hands upon his lips
In something akin to a kiss
And in her arms he stayed asleep
As the night grew dark and the child dreamt deep


Dream, child
As childhood wants to do

Dream all this night will allow
Dream, child
Dream with an angel’s view
Out there safe in your clouds

Wait for me now
I will be there for you
No matter what
Tomorrow may bring
This I will vow
I will be there
For this child with different

Dream, child
Stars have been rumored to
See dreams within newborn eyes
And in their arms I believe they do
Keep safe until you arise

Wait for me now
I will be there for you
No matter what
Tomorrow may bring
This I will vow
I will be there
For this child with different wings

[Narration:]
And so it’s here our story ends
Exactly where it did start
In that labyrinth of mystery
We call the human heart

For they say that without it
No one can truly live
And it also has been rumored
That without it, we cannot forgive

Merry christmas!
