I felt a soul move through me

I felt his soul move through me
I was safe and sound
branches on the window
couldn’t hurt me now
and when the night came
with the childhood fears
his soul moved through me
they disappeared

I felt his soul move through me
as I stepped from the train
here to make a new life
to start again
the spring had brought me
winter kept me here
his soul moved through me
time disappeared

I felt his soul move through me
somewhere in the sky
too late I landed
to say goodbye
he gave me laughter
and I paid with tears
his soul moves through me
I disappeared

I disappeared, ahh

– vocalise

he gave me laughter
and I paid with tears
his soul moves through me
I disappeared

I disappeared

ah-ee-ah, ah
I felt his soul move through me
ah-ha-ha
I felt his soul
