lyrics

Like the cool moonlight refracting,
through the thin nocturnal clouds
Like frozen snow cascading, on a mountain’s ice façade
Like a silver chain in a jeweler’s hands,
like a beacon that beckons a sailor to land
Like the sheen of the sky on a sunless day,
like the music that echoes when angels pray

Voice of silver, speak my name
A velvet box your timbre tames
Tremble slowly, break those chains
Voice of silver, speak my name

Like the sunlight’s soft reflection, on a stony mountain stream
Like the water’s quiet whisper in the silence of the trees
Like the wash of the waves on an empty beach,
like the fragrant flowers that winter can’t reach
Like a lover’s fingers on naked skin,
like a bright-eyed glint with a mischievous grin

Like a billion stars, all shining, in the blackness of the sky
Like the morning birds all singing, as I wake before my eyes
Like the mirror, mirror on the wall, says who’s the fairest of them all
Like the slipper that fits when hope is gone,
like a kiss that brings Aurora’s dawn
