These silent chances pass one by
Who never knew of them at all
Resigned to the hands of fate
We await her impending beck and call

Until we return, paradise interred
Spread your golden wings, let the sails unfurl
Until we return, paradise interred
Spread your golden wings, let the fires burn

These silent chances pass one by
Who never knew of them at all
Resigned to the hands of fate
We await her impending beck and call

Until we return, paradise interred
Spread your golden wings, let the sails unfurl
Until we return, paradise interred
Spread your golden wings, let the sails unfurl

Well opportunities doors did not open wide
The answers remain locked away inside
Locked away inside, locked away inside
Locked away inside, locked away inside

So forced into labor we till the earth
To sow the seeds of our own rebirth

As the days turned into years
Our faith overcame any doubts or fears, any doubts or fears
Are there any doubts or fears? Any doubts or fears
Are there any doubts or fears?

In truth we had found the key
It's application would unravel this mystery
This mystery, this mystery
This mystery, this mystery

GERRARD, LISA GERMAINE / PERRY, BRENDAN MICHAEL / ULRICH, PETER LAWRENCE / RODGER, SCOTT / PINKER, JAMES E.
