lyrics

Crossing the valley, a tune in my ear
Of all the things we said and did last year
Even though, and it’s so, there’s no turning now
I can’t help but ponder the why and the how

The mill is breaking
The water flows fine
Sentinel standing
At the gates of time
The fields, I cross
The mountains I climb

All will mend in time you say
And if I leave tomorrow, I’m still here today
But time is for the time we pay
And love is blind to those who stay

Here in the city, the end of the line
The days: I pass; In weeks: I decline
Even though, and it’s so, the distance is great
I can’t seem to fathom the measures I take

The earth is quaking
Shaking my mind
Sitting and waiting
And waiting in wine
The fields, I cross
The mountains I climb

All will mend in time you say
And if I leave tomorrow, I’m still here today
But time is for the time we pay
And love is blind to those who stay
