lyrics:

When all falls silent,
And the breath of life
Flows from the source
And calms the stormy sea,

My heart-song,
Always sung but seldom heard,
Rises from the mist,
Calling, calling…

Then, slowly,
I turn my gaze,
Drawn toward beauty
And the song’s amber light;

I open my soul,
And I am at peace,
I am in harmony,
Listening, listening…
