in the wake of adversity lyrics – dead can dance

in the wake of adversity

hey, patrice, don’t cry
they’ve no reason to harm you at all
they don’t realise
that the angels surround you with light

they don’t understand
their narrow ways defeat them where they stand
they don’t realise
you hide your sadness beneath a painted smile

ignorance
that light of fools steers a wayward path
and sets the course
upon which we sail into the night of uncertainty

following the stars
that make their way across the sky
valuing the love
that lends grace to our hearts we sail

/ dead can dance lyrics
