AIDS Anthem — Once Again

Once Again
Once again a miracle is beckoned
Day and night the vigil never ends
Tending to the ones who have been stricken
We remember
Once again
Once again our purpose here is strengthened
Rising off our knees we hope and pray
Searching so a single life may lengthen
By the minute
By the hour
By the days
For solutions
To the problem
That is taking us away
We stand together in silence
Our hearts beating strong
We toast to the friendship
Of friends who are gone
We’ll walk through the darkness
No matter how long
Until the will of Life itself
Reveals our way back home
Once again our hearts and eyes are open
Mindful of the lives of parted friends
Reaching out for memories as a token
We remember
Once again
Once again our courage must be certain
Of the love we all will come to know
Let the light we carry raise the curtain
On the shadows
Of tomorrow
Let them go
Let them go
Let them go
We stand together in silence
Our hearts beating strong
We toast to the friendship
Of friends who are gone
We’ll walk through the darkness
No matter how long
Until the will of Life itself
Reveals our way back home
Once again we work and wait for answers
Tired of lighting candles in the wind
Those who’ve passed are far beyond the borders
Of the light
We return to
Once again
Once again a solemn oath is spoken
Not another soulful flight begins
‘Til the spell of mystery has been broken
‘Til it’s over
‘Til it’s done with
‘Til the
Truth descends
Not another life will end
Until the truth descends
Say it once again
We stand together in silence
Our hearts beating strong
We toast to the friendship
Of friends who are gone
We’ll walk through the darkness
No matter how long
Until the will of Life itself
Reveals our way back home
