Verse 1:
Come with me take a trip
We walk softly in the clouds.
Over river rocks between misty mountains.
Smile at me and I'll smile back
And roll out that river raft
Push off from the shoreline
And deep blue green

Spin around and we drift
Over rocks and undercurrents
Past cedars and sunlight and memory
Waves of wind meet our bow
Now hardened and strong
Let the cool air push our way
With the tide we roll on.

I dream of a day when I'll see your face
And I won't have to say goodbye
Maybe someday I'll see you again
And I won't have to wonder why.

Long and winding facing West
Last summer was the best
Sands of time were at rest
You were holding me
These things I can't explain
In the early morning rain
Run with me, leaves fall
And I go on.

Verse 2:
A crescent shape of land
Will catch our bow
And our feet sink into the sand
Facing west light blue
Becomes white and blue
The color will turn darker
And darker still

Orange fire dips below
The horizon line
Paths of light stream out
Catch the corner of my eye
The air is chilled I am warm
The air blows cold at night
But my teeth don't chatter at all



Verse 3:
Sit beside me on a driftwood
On a driftwood chariot
And point out a formation of stars
I'm listening carefully
I'm listening carefully
And the moonlight stops
To touch the sea

I breathe out you breathe in
I look out and let the air
Escape slowly between my lips
For a moment I hear
The roaring of the river
Fading light on cedars
The shutting of a wooden door

(Bridge 2)
It's a place I?ve been before


Verse 4:
I saw crackling embers
I saw crackling embers
Firelight has shown me what I couldn't see
Had I dreamed it had I seen it
Had I felt it did you mean it
Or was it all really all just make believe

Have you ever felt this way
Wish I was driving to yesterday
Past the index caf?
To milepost 36
Miss you I will
We grow farther and farther still
Think of a better way
Tell me a better way
I go on.
