I can't believe in what I've seen
I been forsaken. I been deceived
Cast aside and left behind
I can't believe my own eyes

I been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I heard a lot of stories
But all my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay
I'm walking away

I seen the red sky in the morning
I seen the low tide slipping away
I do believe I'll take warning
Taking my leave to stay

Chorus

Solo

Like an angel afraid to fly
Like the last lonely rose hung on the vine
