lyrics

nothing really dies
nothing’s ever lost forever
nothing really dies

it’s a beautiful life

a child swaddled in questions
drifting through the universe
with no compass to guide
but a tiny ember burns
like a star inside

it’s a beautiful life
caught in this gravity of being
this soul’s fire
makes diamonds of the darkness in me

one blackbird chases after another
blindly to secure
a little big of real estate
a corner of the sky to conquer

it’s a beautiful life
caught in this gravity of being
this soul’s fire
makes diamonds of the darkness in me

cast in a silent spell
immobility
frozen under ice and stone
mountain wraps its arms round me
pressing diamonds of this heart of coal

it’s a beautiful life

(live only once and shine a light underground)

beautiful

(for all of us who yearn for one moment)

nothing really dies
nothing’s ever lost forever
