The Cross Of Changes

salvation
my soul softened in silence
with the sound of your whisper
echoing in the wind
humming to violins in the distance
playing a sweet love song;

in these tempting twilights,
i sip of your spirit in our secret place
where urges are answered,
and questions are not;

in those beautiful eyes,
gazing into mine,
like mirrors into my psyche,
i fell captive
to the tenderness
that only you emit;

a chance encounter
in a world often cold,
a star falling
to kiss my cheek;

when my eyes were stabbed
by that sweet smile of yours,
i let my guard down
and got stuck in what seems like quick sand;

in you i always saw good;
even when no one else would.
that lost look of hurt in your eyes,
drew me to love you and make all your demons die;

i let you into my life and my heart;
why,  why would you tear it apart?
can’t deny i like your style
but it doesn’t just work that way;

i gave you my heart, my love, my trust,
then you did what you did,
i wish I knew the meaning
i wish i get to know the reason;

did you think that you could smile
and steal my heart away?
i love you enough to forgive…
but never forget;

The cross of changes is a 1993 album by Enigma.
the lyrics of the title song goes as follows:

If you understand or if you don’t
If you believe or if you doubt
There’s a universal justice
And the eyes of truth
Are always watching you.
