"Crossing A Canyon" as written by and Merritt/comparelli/osborne/johnson....
Sittin' on the edge, atop a canyon
I'm a piece of time too small to name
There's a sign that's hanging over me
Let me disappear and try again

I'm no prophet, but I've seen things
When right and wrong become too close
In that moment of my greatness
I become afraid and watch it go

And the day is long
And the bridge is gone
And the river's washed away
The road I'm on
Only road I know

Everybody's got a problem
Something to do with self control
You gotta tell somebody if you got one
You can't pretend you didn't know

Staring out, across the canyon
My eyes won't tell me what to see
If I let go, I could be floating
From the river to the sea

And the day is long
And the bridge is gone
And the river's washed away
The road I'm on
Only road I know

If I let go, I could be floating
From the river to the sea

And the day is long
And the bridge is gone
And the river's washed away
The road I'm on
Only road
Only road I know

    General CommentSome of what I got from this song is sharing what you've learned in life with other people, and your own experience is knowledge and not necessarily just what you see.

    General CommentThe song also speaks to me about doing what you've grown to know throughout life, which might not be the best way. Also I sense it's a song about feeling stuck in a situation in life, and your stuck with what your familiar with....maybe it's telling us to let go of our comfort zone and branch out into new territory in terms of our way of life.
