Sunrise after a Sunset

(Guitar INTRO)
(Drums + Bass Begin)

I can hear
My life whispering
Into my ears
If I believe in myself
Then, I should
Have no fears
I will take all
The happiness
The beauty
The scent
The essence
In my arms now

(Strings Begin)

Where ever you go
Days and nights are never the same
Even if your goals are old
Renew your passion and strength

New roads are always there
Just waiting for you to open the doors
To go through them

Where ever you go
Days and nights, they forever change
Write your own destiny
Tell your story to the world
Tell out your story to the world!

(Guitar SOLO)

My life
Has finally revisited me
Fresh breeze enters in
All the silence
Stuck between my words
Are free now
So many moments
I have been through
So many words
Have touched my heart
I see the light in them, not the dark
I learn a lesson from them

There is always love
Filled between those words
That once had hurt me
But, now I realize
They helped me make me

I recognise all the smiles
The words they said to me

(Drum FILL)

Where ever you go
Days and nights, they forever change
Write your own destiny
Tell your story to the world
Where ever you go
Days and nights, they forever change
Sketch your life
The way you want it to be
Where ever you go
There is a sunrise after a sunset
Live your life
The way you want to

This is a brilliant piece about renewal, life, love and finding who you are after losing all... I love it!

A conversation to all and yet to yourself as well. And I do agree with Annie that is a brilliant piece, but it also seems to be your reminder to yourself to keep steady, keep moving forward. Actually, it reminds me of a Disney movie that my kids love- Meet the Robinsons, have you heard of it? Rob Thomas sings the theme song in it called "Little Wonders" and it fits these sentiments you've written here perfectly.

Seeing light and not dark and being renewed is learning the lessons from the pain and trials.

I'll have to agree with Strawberry Girl. We've all lost love at some stage in our lives or missed opportunities which we should've used and now regret. I can relate to this post.

I like how your lyrics compliment the graphic; and how the cycles of broken aspirations hide a new choice. Thanks for dropping by, my friend. Any time you're looking for another instrumental, let me know.

This song was exceptionally beautiful. I have been trying to look at my own life with these eyes lately. It's incredible what happens when we take our lives into our hands and stop relying on external things for our happiness. We are the only ones who can truly bring about change in our lives. Life changes, people changed, days change and years change, but we are a constant to ourselves. Like you say 'there is always a sunrise after a sunset'... yes, there is, we just need to open our eyes to see it. Beautiful.

Opaque said...

@Eva - Yea, true. Thanks!!!
