lyrics

Marissa tells me the sun is rising , but I can't know for sure
been many years since these old eyes have known the day
It's bright, she tells me, much too bright
to gaze long at such a lovely light
but a sight like that just won't let you look away
and I can feel it in these tired bones
a warmth inside my aching heart and a warmth inside my soul
Marissa grasps my hand and holds it tight
despite my eternal night, suddenly it's a new day somehow I know

So many years here surrounded by the cold
felt as if I was all used up long before I became old
first a wife and then two children fade away..
and when my sight deserted me I wasn't blind to all that pain
but this child she shines just like her mother did
so full of warmth and innocence and light
and of every sunrise that's greeted me
in the years I have known them; seventy
I have never known one warmer or so bright
