about

Avra is an ageless fire spirit, and lives in the cloud blankets that meet the very heights of mountains across the world. She has an unusual gift that allows her to harness sunbeams into energy.

A long, long time ago, due to her “unnatural” ways, she was banished by King Night from the realm of rest, and is now a spirit that is unable to go to sleep.

Hurt by this "disability", at first, she was alone and frustrated, and didn’t know how to cope. To fight back, she wanted to fill the darkness of Night’s kingdom with light… so in the daytime, using her strange gift, she collected the sunbeams that shined through the clouds. And at dusk, she traveled the world hiding them in the hearts of those living on Earth.

Although she couldn’t sleep herself, watching the Earth bloom with her light while they slept finally granted Avra her rest.

So when the sun disappears, she travels across the skies of the planet, giving the world her sunbeams… and we call them...

lyrics

Drifting on a cloud blanket,
Stands Avra, the guardian of fire
Giving away all her light
Gathered from much, much higher

Misunderstood by King Night
And adoring the sunbeams falling
She was banished from her sleep
For pursuing her calling

All my life I've heard
"It matters not what's outside"
But if you're odd within
Where all your blazes reside
No matter what you feel
If you're true, if you're scared
I believe
We are good
When we make
Good out there

Cursed, she was so miserable
"Your way is wrong", Night told her
Just to fight back, she brought light
Down to give Earth's dark a spur

Delivering soothing visions
She'd felt alone and distressed
But watching her glow bloom below
Granted Avra's heart some rest

(CHORUS)

Harness it, make your mark
Ring your light, through the dark

Years have passed
Beyond sleep
Frightening first
Such a sweep
But she thawed
Ice to life
With her gift
Oh so rife

Collectin' the flares that fall
Down from the tumbling sunbeams
When it gets dim she hides thems
Deep inside us - they're called "dreams"

(CHORUS x2)
