Took the slow road South again
Trying to find some peace of mind
Evading lies and using time
Hiding from all this unease

Chased the brighter star today
To the foothills of my home
Climbed to where I was alone
And listened to the wiser winds

All through this age (I feel that I've been lost)
We strive and seek for more (lost within the storm)
If only we have known (if we had the time again)
What we were looking for (what would we find anew)
What we were looking for…

Heard the kestrel's cry, wheel and glide
And of the river's song, over wearied stones
Found worlds within the falling clouds and I guess
I fell to feelings that were not my own

Asked the questions that I hold
Waited for the moon to rise
Beside that lake I lazed
Until the snow fell softly down

All through this time
We've dreamt of something more
If only we had known
What we were dreaming for..
