Conquest of Paradise

Hmm ...
 
There shines a light in the heart of man,
Defies the dead of the night,
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight.
 
A sunny day, when a baby's born,
The little things that we say,
A special sparkle in someone's eye,
Simple gifts, every day.
 
Somewhere there's a paradise
Where everyone finds release,
It's here on earth and between your eyes,
A place we all find our peace.
 
Refrain:
        Come - open your heart,
        Reach for the stars,
        Believe your own power.
        Now - here in this place,
        Here on this earth,
        This is the hour.
 
It's just a place we call paradise,
Each of us has his own,
It has no name, no, it has no price,
It's just a place we call home.
 
A dream that reaches beyond the stars
The endless blue of the skies,
Forever wondering: who we are?
Forever questioning: why?
 
        {Refrain}
 
There shines a light in the heart of man,
Defies the dead of the night,
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight,
 
Like wings of hope taking flight.
 
Thanks!

Submitter's comments:

The melody (not the song) was done in 1992 by the Greek electronic composer and artist Vangelis
