Life is a veil of tears
We're covered with sorrow, drowning in fears.
Bring me tomorrow, do I dare ask,
Or will it merely look like the past?
The days, they turn into years.
We walk through this desert each day
For an oasis we beg and we pray;
But when we stumble upon it and drink
Still, we can't help but think
We cannot, will not, forever here stay.
For we are sojourners on this earth
And though we cherish times of mirth
We know this place is not our home
There's only so long that we can roam
For lo, we've been lost since our birth.
