about

Originally written as a possible final melodramatic scene for a concept album or film. Picture the scene: our hero's lover dying in his arms on a deserted beach as her spirit ascends to the heavens blocking out the stars in the night sky as it rises higher and higher.

lyrics

Now I cradle your head
& lay you down to sleep in your bed
Close your eyes now
A new horizon
Lays before you here

Eclipsing Lyra
Climbing high above the sky
Out of my reach
Above the beach I see your beacon fires

Don’t forget me
Just protect me
And keep me free from harm
Dolorosa
Never been closer
Into her open arms

Eclipsing Lyra
Climbing high above the sky
Out of my reach
Beyond the beach your beacon fire

Oh...Lyra

Give and take, but don’t take Lyra, Lyra
