Song Description

the singer of the song is talking to her lover, remembering the good times they had in the beginning and how he saved her. Now things are not so good, and she's trying to get him to hang in there and assures him she'll be there when he comes through at the other end of the dark tunnel.

Lyrics

My mother prayed to the soul o a man
Who had the marks of Jesus in his hands
Put her faith in things not of this world
I made the sign I beat my breast
I put my faith in the pure and the blessed
Turned my back when I lost her

This is a song for you my friend
You gave me back my faith again
When you spoke you broke some spell
I knew when this was begun
This river of rage and fury must run
But deep down remember the darkness ends

Seven stars wheel above me
Seven souls who have loved me
Hope the way that I love you
Is the way you need

Be brave, love, be strong
The best is yet to come
Be brave, love, be strong
The best is yet to come

Never thought we would lose our way
See all this beauty fade away
Lose sight of the world entire
No change can come without a price
A small exacting sacrifice
Then once more we'll see the stars

And the world, how it sparkles how it shines
Will come back, it all comes around in time
And I would come again my love
If it were a million miles
