Our decisions have consequences
that touch the stars
the falling of a single robin
causes the stars to strain

Yet the light circles
ever round and round  
waiting to come in
and walk with you, hand in hand

to dream of touching stars
to be held by angels tight
turn to God with all your might
what are the consequences of our life

even through the endless night
the light still shines bright
bringing us constantly through
to see the dawn then the daybreak
