  • Burning fire,
    A light in the dark,
    Shining day and night for me.
    Flowing water,
    The source of our life,
    Covering the world in blue.
    Gentle air blowing,
    Caressing my face,
    Carry me into dreams of love.

    The endless symphony

    Wasn't it you who was filling my dreams?
    The second element

    Everywhere you are rife

    Wasn't it you who was filling the streams?
    The second element

    With the power of life

    Creeks are winding,
    Just seeking their way,
    Hardly tryin' to reach the sea.
    Raindrops falling,
    From skies to the earth,
    Bringing life to you and me.
    Lakes of silence,
    A magical sound,
    Keeping secrets in the ground.

    A perfect harmony

    Wasn't it you who was breaking the light?
    The second element

    And the rainbows arise

    Oh, wasn't it you who was standing a fight?
    The second element

    From the earth to the skies

    Wasn't it you, who was filling my dreams?
    Wasn't it you, who was filling the streams?
    Wasn't it you, who was breaking the light?

    Wasn't it you? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
