  • And after the storm,
    I run and run as the rains come
    And I look up, I look up,
    On my knees and out of luck,
    I look up.

    Night has always pushed up day
    You must know life to see decay
    But I won't rot, I won't rot
    Not this mind and not this heart,
    I won't rot.

    And I took you by the hand
    And we stood tall,
    And remembered our own land,
    What we lived for.

    But there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    Get over your hill and see what you find there,
    With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

    And now I cling to what I knew
    I saw exactly what was true
    But oh no more.
    That's why I hold,
    That's why I hold with all I have.
    That's why I hold.

    I won't die alone and be left there.
    Well I guess I'll just go home,
    Oh God knows where.
    Because death is just so full and man so small.
    Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

    And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    Get over your hill and see what you find there,
    With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

    And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    Get over your hill and see what you find there,
    With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair. Writer/s: BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID LOVETT, EDWARD JAMES MILTON DWANE, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE MUMFORD, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR MARSHALL
