lyrics

JASPER:
Elysium
The silent sighed lost lullaby
Elysian night

Elysium
The child who climbs the edge of time
Elysian night

The place the child you hardly knew
Sailed to in his wooden shoe
Past the last star in the sky
Where wishes never wished go lie

Elysium
The child who climbs the edge of time
Elysian night

The place where all the love you shared
Went day by day til none was there
Where yearning and forgotten dreams
Are nursery rhymes the quiet sing

Elysium
The silent sighed lost lullaby
Elysian night

Elysium
The child who climbs the edge of time
Elysian night

The childhood friend you knew was there
But never saw or touched and where
They went when never called again
The place their loneliness all ends

All the sorrow, guilt and shame
Burdens borne and karma paid
In one soft breath like candlelight
Dispersed in endless Elysian night

Elysium
The silent sighed lost lullaby
Elysian night

Elysium
The child who climbs the edge of time
Elysian night
