Lyrics

mercy come upon us
mercy let us go
hold me up just longer
shine a light on hope

shine upon what's missing
shine upon the rest
calm the winds inside me
torrents in my chest

it only takes a moment for a lifetime to go by
it only takes a moment for the changing of the signs

you will not remember
though you were the same
the Jewel of June, the Gemini
forever shares your name

forever in our minds
as if love would obey time
as if wonder could be lost
as if truth could tell a lie

it only takes moment for a lifetime to go by
it only takes a moment for the changing of the signs

mercy you're upon us
mercy you've been slow
lest you think we're stronger
for what we've got to show

cast upon what shines now
a shadow laid to rest
the voices of our fathers
whispers of our death

it only takes moment for a lifetime to go by
it only takes a moment for the changing of the signs
