Sai: Quiet, you lie asleep

Dreaming of a peaceful place

Soaking up the warm embrace

Of the overhanging sun

Phoebe: Flowers bloom all around

Woven through the grass and trees

A soft and fragrant tapestry

That the elements have spun

Kyrie: The weather is perfect for now

But there’s no guarantee it will stay

Kikyo: As the sunlight grows dim

And the sky starts to darken with gray

Sai: But you know it won’t be long

‘Til the clouds give way

(And the clouds give way)

daphne: Quiet, you lie asleep

Dreaming of a peaceful place

That’s when the raindrops hit your face

Making rivulets like tears

RSK: Startled and half-awake,

You hurry toward the nearest tree

Tucked beneath its canopy

You can wait until it clears

YEOL.: The rain begins to pour

You’ve never seen a storm like this before

Minutes stretch into hours, into days

As lightning sets the sky ablaze

And you ask

Azure: When will the sun come out?

When will we be okay?

(When will the clouds give...)

When will our lives return?

When will the world be safe?

When will the clouds

When will the clouds give—

Freya: We all spend so much time

Waiting for the skies to clear

High up in the stratosphere

The clouds block out the stars

Hikari: Maybe on other worlds

The sun has chased the storm away

But who knows if the light of day

Will ever visit ours

All: It’s tempting to sit somewhere safe

And hope that the weather will change

But after a while

You start wondering whether it’s


How time seems to freeze

When problems can’t be solved

By hiding under trees

And there’s nothing left to do

But sink to your knees

And pray

That the storm lets up

And the wind dies down

And the sun peeks out

Miyo: As the clouds give way
