"Fortune" as written by Eric Pulido, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Tim Smith and Mckenzie Smith....
Down to the valley where the fortunes grow
Down to the free
That gathered holy 'round the fire that grows so well

On with the laughter when the work is done
It is what it is
A passing work of human hands where faults abound

While the rains would come
While the end was unknown
Nothing had proved too much
No path was solely my own

Most of the daylight nothing filled my mind
Quiet was I
And I was held away from evil that spoke my name

All he was wanting was a bumbling man
I wouldn't go
Wanting only to feel the time around me stay

While the rains would come
While the end was unknown
Nothing had proved too much
No path was solely my own

    General CommentTo me, this song is about being able to get through anything in life as long as you have someone with you, and fellowship with others. A simplicity to life that is beautiful when shared.

    General CommentThis is my favourite on the album, probably no coincidence that it feels like the song could have been on The Trials of Van Occupanther. Not that I don't love The Courage of Others, but Van Occupanther is my favourite album of all time alongside Blood on the Tracks.

    Their songs make me yearn for a simply, peaceful life in the forest.

    General CommentYes, this is my Favorite track of this album as well. The chorus makes is so memorable. Great harmonies as will all they're stuff. I was kinda hoping for another Ballon maker from this Album though.
