lyrics

Wind of goodbye

I’ve got this feeling in my heart
A time to move on
I’ve got this calling in my soul
To sing a new song

I’ve been down in the valley
And my clothes are all torn
Was a pride of the lion who threw me to the floor

In a midnight fire
I heard the cries of war
There were too many flames
saw the writing on the walls

Did I see it coming
My Lord
Did I see it coming
This cruel cruel world

When I reflect across the years
From the ashes of the ruin
I will keep my eyes ahead
And wait upon the wind of goodbye
It will blow your tears away

Across the war torn border
Long before I saw her face
Came a prophet from the valley
With a picture I can’t erase

Was it you in the distance
I am tested through my faith
But the Lord knows my heart
And he will bless me in his grace

At the start of every day
I hold a prayer for you in my heart
It may seem like it’s coming slow
But it’s just waiting on the wind of goodbye
It will blow your fears away

I have this feeling in my heart
A time to move on
I’ve got this calling in my soul
To sing a new song

I’m going to rise above the valley
into the spirit of the wind
I’m going to rise above the valley
Hear the voices of angels sing

I close my eyes it sounds so sweet
Like a thousand symphonies
Resounding through the distant trees
And waiting on the wind of goodbye
It will blow your tears away
