Above The Sun

Misty Edwards


I've got scars on my face
And they are the traces
Of my adolescence wrestling with graces
But beauty would never be mine
It's never still long enough to define it
In this always changing, perpetual vanity of life

I'm gonna live
Above the sun
Where I'll never die
And life goes on
I'm gonna live
Above it all
Where purpose is found
Above the stars
In you

I've got scars on my soul
And they are the show and tell
Of a dance with illusion
That tried to lead to hell
But pleasure would never be mine
It's never real long enough to find it
In this always fading, perpetual fragile life

I'm gonna live
Above the sun
Where I'll never die
But life goes on
I'm gonna live
Above it all
Where purpose is found
Above the stars
In you
