We Are Eternal

 

Written by Rick Springfield

Waiting for the clock to stop
The other shoe to finally drop
The storekeeper to close up shop
The final call from the mountain top
A face that made the young girls shy
A voice that sang the highest high
The light that dimmed inside your eye
I whispered as I said goodbye

We are eternal (we take flight)

Stairway to the stars our spirit seeks

Cross the internal into light

Away from the skeptics and Jesus freaks

We watched as our dreams came true
We crashed and burned but made it through
Although we burned a bridge or two
In the end it didnít matter
If I'd paint my life, Iíd paint it blue
You brought the light thatís what you do
But now I sit here mourning you
And memories just scatter

We are eternal (we take flight)
Stairway to the stars our spirit seeks
Cross the infernal (into light)
Away from the skeptics and Jesus freaks

I was searching for answers and bleeding from paper cuts
(Bleeding from paper cuts)
We are eternal (here tonight)

More than this life of 4000 weeks

We are eternal, whoa, whoa whoa
We are eternal, whoa, whoa whoa

We are eternal, we take the stairway to the stars our spirit seeks
Cross the infernal (into light)
Away from the skeptics and Jesus freaks

Our souls searching for answers and waiting for miracles

 

(Waiting for miracles)

 

We are eternal (here tonight)
More than this life of 4000 weeks
 

Waiting for the clock to stop
