  • Lost
    On a painted sky
    Where the clouds are hung
    For the poet's eye
    You may find him
    If you may find him

    There
    On a distant shore
    By the wings of dreams
    Through an open door
    You may know him
    If you may

    Be
    As a page that aches for words
    Which speaks on a theme that's timeless
    While the Sun God will make for your day
    Sing
    As a song in search of a voice that is silent
    And the one God will make for your way

    And we dance
    To a whispered voice
    Overheard by the sould
    Undertook by the heart
    And you may know it
    If you may know it

    While the sand
    Would become the stone
    Which begat the spark
    Turned to living bone
    Holy, holy
    Sanctus, sanctus

    Be
    As a page that aches for word
    Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
    While the Sun God will make for your day
    Sing
    As a song in search of a voice that is silent
    And the one God will make for your day Writer/s: NEIL DIAMOND
