In the valley of the dying sun I walk a crooked path alone I came across the shadow of a man With an angel's breath
'O boy' he said to me 'I see your future' 'Though you long for peace The sword is your father
I'm thinking of you I'm thinking of you when I kill a good man To keep myself from being killed by him I'm thinking of you I'm thinking of you when I hold my girl And wonder if she'll ever love again I'm thinking of you Wash the blood off my hands
Bathed in the powder of a thousand guns I am the king of sorrows Watered by the tears of the innocent ones The river grows It moves It swells
'Son' It calls to me 'Your days are numbered Sow the seeds you will But I am the reaper'
'I'm thinking of you I'm thinking of you when you kill a good man To keep yourself from being killed by him I'm thinking of you I'm thinking of you when you hold your girl And wonder if she'll ever love again I'm thinking of you Wash the blood off your hands'
I howled at the moon like a wolf in the night You want to finish it We're gonna finish it right
And then I felt it with a chill up my spine There are no words to use that truly describe The glory of the angel or the terror in me Tonight will be my ending or tonight my new beginning
All through the night I wrestled the angel To undo the curse That's burdened me all of my life
And for the first time I could see That God was not my enemy
"I'm thinking of you"
Like pieces of the sun Our light burns on and on and on Like stars in the night sky we shine I'm living to shine on
