I've seen the fires
of sunrises and sunsets.
I've seen how ocean water
breaks massive stones.
I know that human kindness,
sometimes, can stop a war.
Will everything I've seen and know
be lost in time, like tears in the rain?
When everything is said and done,
when from this world I will be gone,
when I can no longer feel the pain,
will I be lost in time, like tears in the rain?
Like tears in the rain...
Like a candle,
my life is burning away,
and all I can do is shine,
until I can no longer fight the darkness.
So those who want,
can share my light and warmth,
before I will be lost in time,
like tears in the rain.
