There is a bright light around me but I don’t feel the burn
I am sinking into a dream from which I cannot return
I am waiting for someone to take me to the other side
But the gathering is lessening in this cold night
I can hear the river crying as it rumbles by me
Carrying all my sorrows into the far sea
Where are the chains that were binding me to this world?
Maybe I have been set free without giving the word
Don’t worry my friends I will be going ahead to find a good spot
And I will wait for you there with the treasures you had sought
As the fire burns out and the darkness folds
A new sun rises that cuts the cold
As my journey comes to an end in a blaze of red flame
My last wish is that please do remember my name.
