lyrics

GLIMPSE
words: keith erasmus & roger seldon
based on the poem " a fleeting glimpse of paradise" by keith erasmus
music: roger seldon ramsgate 2001

Standing on the edge of nowhere in particular
On the cutting edge of the keel, on the fractured ledge of the Chosen One
On the shattered wedge of the wheel where the hand floats free in the windspace
While the foot is seeking a hold and the eye is enraptured by a cloud chase

As the landscape of the heart grows cold with the moment
Then lost at last in the love of God in a dusty room
In the dust-warm glow of a dying sun in a lost hour
Lost at last in the crashing wave of a limitless desire to be free

Long way from home
Where my heart is free to be a wanderer
New angels fly
Testing wings not yet broken

Long way from home
Where my heart is free to be a wanderer
New angels fly
Testing wings not yet broken
And windward blows
The sky and I are as one
As I sit on my cloud
Touching windcurls with my wingtips

Long way from home
Where my heart is free to be a wanderer
New angels fly
Testing wings and SOARING
And SOARING!
And SOARING!
