Lyrics

You and me
So blind are we
Set to the wheel
In the dark of the day
We smile and cry
Our soul's young and spry
Flailing and laying about
Finding our way

But oh so long
The road seems to climb and climb
How I long to be here

A simple thing it is to sing
To lift up your voice
At the break of day
But to walk this world
With love unfurled
Can draw the tears
From the eye of the heart

But oh so long
The road seems to climb and climb
How I long to be here

We may be wrong
We may be right
I just don't know
Where we stand in the light
But of all the souls
I have to say
Yours is the one
I's share all of my days

But oh so long
The road seems to climb and climb
How I long to be here
