I wonder why it is the sky's so quiet tonight,
there's not a cloud in sight,
just burning stars.
it seems strange to me, the way the waves obey
the moon that shines above
and draws them to eternity.
i wonder why it is that you are here with me,
i wonder why.
I wonder why it is the sea's so calm tonight,
the sands are ghostly white
beneath the moon.
it seems strange to me to stand in endless space,
and know that in this place
i'm held within its timeless sway.
i wonder why it is that you are here with me.
i wonder why.
The wisdom of the world with all its mystery
is strangely haunting me on this great shore.
i know no book can teach, but i can feel tonight,
the sky above, the sea below,
and you my love.
tonight the world is mine, we're on the edge of time.
i wonder why.
i wonder why it is the sky's so quiet tonight,
there's not a cloud in sight,
just burning stars.
it seems strange to me, that breeze in holy light,
we soar in wingless flight,
amidst this vast eternity.
tonight this world of mine is on the edge of time,
i wonder why.
i wonder why.
i wonder why.
i wonder why.
