Lyrics by Anine Theron (2001)



flying closer to the sun
back to where it all begun
these golden dreams of desert sands
i have long since left behind

oh, oh, i will go

lonely fires burning slow
in a holy place below
oh weary watchmen of the stars
do you see all it is we hide?

oh, oh

i will go back to where it all begun
leave the heat and dust behind
leave my skin and bones to dry
now i'm closer to the sun
back to where it all begun..
