Part of it All

I was standing in an open door
Lightning lit the sky, raindrops splashed across the floor
And the wind and sound and energy
Were inside of me
And I dreamed of seasons long ago
When I walked through mountains deep with moonlit snow
And I knew that everything I see
Is a part of me

CHORUS:

And a white rose blooms in the dark
And the moon glows like a slow-burning spark
And my soul knows I’ve always been a part of it all

By the midnight Gulf of Mexico
A wall of clouds came drifting very slow
Through the warm and humid moonlit sky
While the waves rolled by
And when the wall of clouds went past
The weather changed, like stepping through the looking glass
To a new world that was cool and dry
And the changes in my heart were reflected in the sky

And a white rose blooms in the dark
And the moon glows like a slow-burning spark
And my soul knows I’ve always been a part of it all

On an autumn night when leaves were gone
We were lying in a field waiting for the dawn
And the sky was filled with shooting stars
And each one was ours
And as the eastern sky grew light
And the shooting stars were fading with the night
I knew that like the rising sun
Soon we all will see
That the world is one

And a white rose blooms in the dark
And the moon glows like a slow-burning spark
And my soul knows that I’ll always be a part of it all
