But at the moment the future remains crude
Just sit, wait, and watch for the red sky
Don’t ever let it pass you by
The darkness may be all you know
But its comfort is just a show
Can you run towards the white
Can you trade in dark for light
I know you’re afraid
I know you feel safer in the shade
So I’ll sit and wait with you
And we’ll watch for the sun that shines the morning dew
