lyrics

TRULY BEAUTY

These cliffs rise higher than seventy people standing on top of each other
These cliffs rise high forever saluting the sky
I stand with the giants of old looking into the sunset
Even when I come here another day I will say

This is truly beauty
I really feel privileged to see
This is truly beauty
Take a deep breath in with me
This is truly beauty

Old faces in the stone, their eyes are closed, their thoughts unknown
Every sound echoes loud, waves bouncing all around
Water’s cold, dark and deep, insects skip and creatures creep
Every tree whispers the sound of the spirits heard

This is truly beauty
I really feel privileged to see
This is truly beauty
Take a deep breath in with me
This is truly beauty

A lean figure, Shadow by name, leads us to his rocky domain
He mocks at how took me so long to get away from the worldly throng
Silence whispers in my ear, it’s been so long since he did
It’s closing, it’s closing, it’s closing in

This is truly beauty
I really feel privileged to see
This is truly beauty
Take a deep breath in with me
This is truly beauty.
