Kansas - Lamplight Symphony Lyrics

  • On a winter's night, stars are cold and bright in the sky,
  • The slumber of the earth is pure and deep
  • From a distant wood, drifts the echo of a beast
  • The old man stirs and wakens in the night
  • He stands before his window gazing at the grave
  • Forgotten dreams are flashing through his weary mind
  • And though his life is empty, he pretends that she's still there
  • With hunger in his soul, he yearns for life and love gone by,
  • With memories his one and only joy
  • All he has to give, he would give to bring back the life,
  • And raise the one who lies beneath the snow
  • He lights a lamp and looks at pictures of the past
  • The faces of their youth still glow with new-found love,
  • But the picture's faded, and time has stolen youth away
  • With a spoken word that he thought he heard from her lips,
  • He felt another presence in the room,
  • He was filled with fear but filled with joy he arose
  • And turned to face the image that he knew
  • She stood before him and her hand reached out for his
  • A peaceful light shone in her eyes
  • She said she'd come to soothe him, and someday they'd be as one
  • She began to fade and her image disappeared,
  • So he was left alone to face the night,
  • Never in his life, had he been so held in awe,
  • As he faced the apparition of his wife
  • He stood before the window gazing at the grave,
  • And with a lightened heart he saw the first of dawn,
  • He knew that she was waiting, that someday they'd be as one
