Dungeon Ghyll

We’d been on a break in the Lake District and climbed up Dungeon Ghyll, through the rain and cloud to an island above the clouds. The view was awesome, humbling. There was a cloud that for a second looked like an angel. Later, in the car on the way home I had the first verse drop into my brain.

Been to a mountain
Thought I saw an angel
She smiled and pointed to the top
Said it never rains there
Then she was gone
Blown away like my mind
And I heard her singing in a tumbledown voice
Like a waterfall falling
inding out it’s coarse
Singing songs of freedom
Dancing on the rocksSongs of life

Where were you when the sun broke through
When the light spilled like gold on the ground
Did you open you’re soul and did you take it in
Or did you stand with your head in the ground

And I heard her playing like a young one plays
Chasing after rain just like the blessing heaven gave
And if now was dark then tomorrow was a brand new day
And I’ve seen rainbows and I’ve seen tears
But I’ve been carried through all these years
Now I need I need these arms that took my pain

Where were you when the sun broke through
When the light spilled like gold on the ground
Did you open you’re soul and did you take it in
Or did you stand with your head in the ground
Did you put on the shades,
Did you turn on the lie
When the light shone into your soul
Or did you open your eyes and believe you could fly
And let the light make your spirit whole

If these mountains should fall to the sea
It wouldn’t change a thing that I believe
Cos I was there I saw the power that raised them up to the sky
My faith aint subject to what I see
My faith is the substance of things unseen
It’s the fire in my heart that gives my life wings to fly
