Beside me singing in the Wilderness--

Track Name: Lost Sparrow
Won't you come and fly with me?
Past hills and trees the sky and sea
Higher than we've ever been
Won't you come and fly with me?
Colours mixed like none before
See the sunrise hit the floor
Now's the chance let's take the risk
Leave it all go far from this

What holds you back from what could be?
Is it the fear of being free?
Lose the pain the fear and strife
Let it go, it's alright
Don't pretend to be so strong
Marching on through trumpet call
The last come first the strong will fall
We're only people after all
Marching on through trumpet call
The last come first the strong will fall
We're all just people after all
The last come first the strong will fall
We're marching forward
The strong will fall

So won't you come and fly with me?
Past hills and trees the sky and sea
Higher than we've ever been
Won't you come and fly with me?
Colours mixed like none before
See the sunrise hit the floor
Now's the chance let's take the risk
Leave it all go far from this
Far from this
Far from this
Leave it now go far from this

Daylight fading faster now
You can come with me somehow
Let it all come falling down
The moon is shining brighter now
Come away with me
So let your fears come falling down
Let the walls fall
Don't be afraid, it'll be alright
We're all just sparrows lost in flight

Won't you come and fly with me?
Past hills and trees the sky and sea
Higher than we've ever been
Won't you come and fly with me?
Colours mixed like none before
See the sunrise hit the floor
Now's the chance let's take a risk
Leave it all go far from this
We're moving forward
No looking back right now
Moving forward

What holds you from the good to come?
Are you scared of coming undone?
Take off the mask no time to hide
Stop putting forth your foolish pride
Don't be afraid you've got a hand
Leading you through barren land
You don't have to be so strong
The last come first the strong will fall
