Story

A male-female duet with an intriguing verse melody, lovely chorus, and only a spacey, haunting guitar as enhancement. This one is all about finding the One you've been waiting for... whether it be the man or woman of your dreams, or perhaps seeing the face of God at the end of one's life journey.

Lyrics

every dawn is just another chance
for one more lonely day
but you know that there’ll be treasure
at this journey’s end
ever since you were a child
you’ve knelt down at your bed to pray
to find the strength to keep your chin up
as you round another bend

as the years kept slipping by
you felt a silent warm embrace
reminding you of things to come
a whispered hope to soothe your soul
but sometimes faith and hope and love
can disappear without a trace
and leave you longing for someone to touch your hand
and make you whole

but when you gaze upon the face that you love
you will know that it was worth it
all along
when you gaze upon the face that you love
you will know that it was worth it
all this trouble will be gone

the time for grief and pain is past
the mist is fading from the glass
celebration day is drawing near

all your doubts and fears have washed away
a cleansing spirit’s hand
you felt a chime ring through your bones
as if to signal new found life
reaching out through time to feel the sky
the sunshine on the sand
no need for worry or regrets
the bridge is crossed you’ve seen the light
