Verse 1:
I open my eyes to the light of Day;
As I Enter the door to Discovery;
I wanna know, wanna see,
wanna feel everything that’s real,
everything that’s real

Verse 2:
I look in the room of Mystery;
From the 7 Wonders to the 7 Seas;
Through time and space a journey set for me,
before me

The storms may come like a raging sea;
But they’ll never triumph for You hold the key;
In the arms of love I will truly be free,
be truly free

Verse 3:
I call on Your name for eternity;
We walk the road in victory;
Gotta learn, gotta grow,
gotta share everything that I know;
...everything that I know

Verse 4:
The storms may come like a raging sea;
But I know the love that lives in me;

Verse 5:
Above the mountains and the seas;
We walk the road in victory;
Surely Goodness and Mercy are with me,
...are with me

Verse 6:
Come join the quest and live in peace;
Be glad you joined the Discovery;
The God that gives all life will set you free,
...will set you free

Whatever in this life;
Wherever you may be;

We must not dwell in the past;
Sometimes when we spoke;

I’m Flying, (flying)
trying just to reach the other side
I’m Flying, (flying)
trying just to reach the other side;
But, I cant do it; (I just can’t do it)
I cant do; (just can’t do it);
without your wings to fly, yeah!...

Flying, flying so high
Take these wings and learn how to fly

In silence and in sound

... Remember me (whispered)

Verse 1:
The fondest days of my memory
Have brought me back to you;
Where I dream of the quiet getaways;
And the time we were two

Verse 2:
And how I remember ;
all those summer nights
where we'd walk along the grove ;
We would try to catch
all of those fire flies ;
they would light up our road

Chorus 1:
I feel a burning
Deep in my heart;
Just like I knew it
right from the start
... And it remains

Oohs (solo verse)

Chorus 2:
I feel a burning deep in my heart;
Just like I knew it right from the start
And it remains

It remains in my heart;
Pure as a part only for you;
It strengthens our love;
to fly as a dove;
calling to you

Verse 3:
The image of you stays with me;
Reminds me of our love;
I see a moment locked in time;
A portrait of you all mine

Verse 4:
Now I'm here on this place
I feel that lasting embrace
The time has come;
We must move on;
So love will not be erased

... Remember me (whispered)
