Sun floating up, slipping back down
In conjunction with the moon and life on the ground
Your fire It burns, rain it cools
I hope that you’ll stay

Pulse to pulse, all of these years
Reflections on your face, the taste of your tears
Centuries gone, for the spirits you’ve faced
I hope that you’ll stay

Children grow up, elders grow down
Watch them fly high, crash to the ground
Help them move on, welcome them home
hope that they’ll stay
