Trick of the Light

I know you saw belief in me,
That I had a faith to find
Sometimes a fatal moment can
Leave you far behind

And survivors of the shipwreck see
Life on land so differently;
And every detail rarefied:
A rose; a river; a morning sky

Is this a bright and shining life?
Or is it just a trick of the light?

And if trust is like a blessing
Under which we live and know.
May it see us through the darker times
When the shadows grow and grow.

Is this a bright and shining life?
Or is it just a trick of the light?

Trick on me. Canít you see?
Trick on me. Canít you see?

Is this a bright and shining life?
Or is it just a trick of the light?
