One has seen the light
When one has heard the silence
When one has felt the hand
That takes away the desire to live

As moments come and go
And nothing’s in the making
The sense of emptiness
Washes away the unraveling will

As the night hovers without stars
At the bottom some quietly lie

As one thinks he knows
About the fight of others
One is forever lost
Deep in a gap littered with empty words

From where I stand the light
Is always a shining
Come near and sit with me
Your heart aches
For some understanding

Where the night hovers without stars
At the bottom they quietly lie

As one arises
From the depths of within
One has conquered the fears
Of not being able to fix the broken

One has seen the light
When one has known the darkness
When one has probed the soul
From cave to cave and abyss to abyss

As the night hovers with no stars
At the bottom some quietly lie

Francis Voignier San Francisco, California

I started my first band in 1967 and never looked back. I moved from Eastern France to Paris and then London where I made my professional debut. I worked in NYC
as a sideman between 78 and 82 before heading for SF where I did 10 years in the trenches with more bands than I can remember. I now live in Arcata, California.
