Lyrics by Robin Steen

Verse 1

In the wind,
a winter song
calls my name, the vowels long.
I know the owl's never wrong.

In my mind:
a cold clear light.
In my heart, I long to fly
fast and free beyond the sky.


But now, I can't see the road before me (at all).
My fingers numb upon the wheel,
Cannot hear the tires squeal
in the fast lane.

Slow-motion lightning, butterfly kissed
the bird emerges from the mist.
the owl is silent on the wing,
I can hear the angels sing
over the fast lane.

Passing in and out of consciousness-
the blindness merges with the bliss.
I hear the owl call my name,
a feather falling through the rain
to the fast lane.

Verse 2

In the night,
the hours are long.
All alone and far away,
I hone the tune that I must play.

In the dream,
the way is clear:
ride the wind into the dark
and feed my spirit to the spark.
