Mystery - Jane Byaela
Are you afraid you will find justice
In what you were running from?
Rocks of the river and the timeless drum
That only sing when the storm's rising.
Unchain this love and
Promise to return as someone you don't know.
Are you afraid of forgiveness
In one who's soul may not be yours,
In a rain you can't hear singing,
Locked outside of silent doors?
Are you afraid of what you will find,
Turning of the tide,
That only show what you must hide?
Are you afraid of meaning,
Love you have denied,
The house of dreams you kept inside?
Are you afraid of the freedom
In a tree born out of the stone
Reaching into leaves and branches
No one knows how it has grown
