Celestial Horses

Here comes those silver celestial horses

Rays of the moon in the mountain air

I’m steeped in the steam of the last wild hot spring

Maybe I’m melting but I don’t care

There’s darkness in the canyon

But the Light comes pounding through

For me and for you

Tomorrow may be a hissing blowtorch

Maybe a silken sky shaken by the wind

The world’s in the wake of those whispering horses

But there’s always a pillar of cloud on the valley’s rim

There’s darkness in the canyon

But the Light comes pounding through

For me and for you

Still river full of the depths of the candles

Burning for the free ones riding on the other shore

Even at the heart of these breathing shadows

You can feel us gathering at the door

There’s darkness in the canyon

But the Light comes pounding through

For me and for you

For me and for you
