Between the River and the Road

BETWEEN THE RIVER AND THE ROAD

Between the river and the road
I have walked this path before
Scorched by fire, clenched in cold
On my way to distant shore

Between the mountains and the sky
Like a bird I too have soared
Stopped to often to ask why
On my way to distant shore

Road it may crumble, tumble and fall
River run through it, rumbling all night long
River keep going whether low or high
River come back again, after the river run dry

Between the laughter and the pain
I have walked this path before
Bathed by sunlight, drenched in rain
On my way to distant shore

Between the river and the road
Lulled by angels, racked by war
Oldest story ever told
To lay my head on distant... shore
