I’ll wrap my silver wings around you,
Bound to keep you cold.
You’ll be separated from the warmth,
While you’re in my hold.
I will not let you be,
Among the hatred and the strife.
I want to keep you here with me,
All through your life.
 
Come to me, my angel of night.
But don’t count on me to show you the light.
I found you here, all alone
Silently singing, as truth has shown,
A song of longing to be near,
A song of love, I shouldn’t fear.
But once love dies, and you are free,
Know that your sins flew into me.
 
Thank me, now, for showing you how,
For taking your pain away,
For catching your voice in my silver wings,
As night catches the day.
 
I see you there, once again,
Falling majestically out and in,
Of silence and softness,
But for who?
Once again, I come to you.
I wrap you in my silver wings,
And hide you from such loving things.
For, once love dies, and you are free,
Know that your sins flew into me.
