Lyrics

Dancing With Dragons
© 2012 Sahlen/Starburst, rev. 9-20-12

Once I danced with dragons breathing fire from my mouth
Roamed this world a stallion, galloping from north to south
Soared above the heavens; no place I couldn't reach
Once I was immortal, now marooned upon this beach

(chorus)
The sands of time are shifting now; the waves caress the shore
Stunning glowing victories dull to one small roar
Don't fail me now my brother; the one who holds the truth
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?

They were the best of times, all in my formative years
When nothing could persuade me that I'd ever hide from fears
Amidst the universe's unearthly pleasure dome
Once I was a miracle, perched upon my throne

(chorus)
The sands of time are shifting now; the waves caress the shore
Stunning glowing victories dull to one small roar
Don't fail me now my brother; the one who holds the truth
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?

Instrumental break with ohhs and ahhs at 2:13 to 2:31

(bridge)
The wisdom of the ages fights for comfort through the night
As finely tuned memories continue to take flight

(chorus)
The sands of time are shifting now; the waves caress the shore
Stunning glowing victories dull to one small roar
Don't fail me now my brother; the one who holds the truth
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?
Why is it you abandoned me, my quickly fading youth?
