The past lies behind me

Dust on a sunflower

The future lies ahead of me

The violet in the bower

The present is next to me

Holding my hand

As it helps me though

This cold and barren land

The stars blink bright

And this hand I'm clinging to feels right

Hold my hand, hold it tight

Help me through this strange and wonderful night

Close my eyes, open my heart

Let the beauty of life in me start

Carry me, comfort me

Please never desert me

Love me, hold me

Repeat things that you have told me

Hold my hand, hold it now

Hold it as I take my starting bow

My life is behind me

Spread out in gray

My love is ahead of me

Clear as a foggy day

My confusion settles in me

Keeping me back

It laughs and mocks

And points out what I lack

But the stars still blink bright

And this hand I'm clinging to feels right

Hold my hand, hold it tight

Help me through this strange and wonderful night

Close my eyes, open my heart

Let the beauty of life in me start

Carry me, comfort me

Please never desert me

Love me, hold me

Repeat things that you have told me

Hold my hand, hold it now

Hold it as I make it through, somehow

And oh…

I think the wrong things

As I watch the eagle soar on it's wings…

But wings have no hands

Lost in desert sands

I look to the sky,

My hands held up so high….

Hold my hand, hold it tight

Help me through this strange and wonderful night

Close my eyes, open my heart

Let the beauty of life in me start

Carry me, comfort me

Please never desert me

Love me, hold me

Repeat things that you have told me

Hold my hand, hold it now

Hold it as you help me through, somehow

Hold it as I take my first and final bow
