Diamond truth that I know Scars that were made with Bones and Steel False dreams in my eyes, lain with the dark Wilderness. Thunder draws me from sleep I feel the hooves I can now see her Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Diamond tears in my eyes Rain on my face Wilderness She's so real in the dark Breath on my neck I can now feel her Run as far as I can with all that I am All I have ever known Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Freedom fevers my skin Lain with the light I can now heed the call Riding before the dawn Wind of my face I shall not fear her Diamond truth I have found Scars that will fade I will now ride with her Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm Pale Horse Phantasm

Darkness and Light Bring on the night Cast from the earth Shatter the sky Burned from the fire Drowned by the sea Burned from the fire Drawn by the waves Daughters of man gather your seeds take to the land cast out your hands Daughters of Man be not afraid Daughters of Man Take what you've made Darkness and Light Banish the night Here take my hand Follow me there Born by the dawn Daughters of Man Born by the dawn Burned by the fire Daughters of Man Banish the night Daughters of Man Cast out your hands Cast out your hands Cast out your hands Cast out your hands

After the rain the sun will come again Watch as the clouds all fade away After the rain the streets will shine again Out of this fight we all rise again After the flood only love remains After the storms have blown away After the tears only love will reign After the flood only love remains I see your face and nothing has changed Eyes like the sun smiling with grace Out in the streets your courage remains Breaking your hands to save this place After the flood only love remains After the storms have blown away After the tears only love will reign After the flood only love remains Life is the battle we cannot gauge Time is a war we cannot wage Blood is the price we all must pay Love is the shelter we all must save After the flood only love remains After the storms have blown away After the tears only love will reign After the flood only love remains After the flood only love remains...

When I was on Horseback When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty When I was on Horseback wasn't I fine Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the valley with pistol and sword and men by my side When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty When I was on Horseback wasn't I brave Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the country and met with my downfall on the twelfth day of May Its four white horses to carry my coffin its four white horses to walk by my side Four white horses, black plumes and red roses Birds singing sweetly as we move along Beat the drums and play the pipes only Play up the dead march as we go along and bring me to Richmond and lay me down easy I am a young Cavalier with God on my side When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty When I was Horseback wasn't I fine Wasn't I pretty as I rode through the valley with pistol and sword and men by my side
