Lyrics

The dark great river bends below me,
A void of light now tells me so—
Where tiny towns crowd its shoulders,
Between the world and all I know…
Thunder rolls beneath my feet
And mountain clouds slide just for show—
Flashing green along the border
Between the world and all I know

A woman sang out on a corner
And left me longing just today,
To give my self the same surrender,
To lift and give it all away…

I hold my face now to this window,
And meet another letting go—
Standing just outside of reason,
Between the world and all I know…
I’m an hour from arriving,
Three from where I rose to go—
And maybe two from where I’ll find you,
Between the world and all I know
