Over mountains
That's where my love lives
A long, long ride to sunland
Here where I did this

Across the great divide
Alone (wondering open afraid and)
Arriving alive
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided)

If I could I might
Send my love on a plane ride
A black cross high in a blue sky
A green cross gliding on a million pines

Across the great divide
Alone wondering open afraid and,
Arrive in a life
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided)

Across the great divide
Alone (wondering open afraid and)
Try to find a life
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided)

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful, I play it on my ukulele when all else seems to fail. I find myself singing it out of the blue, just to make myself feel better. I love this song.

    General CommentI am amused that the person before chose to insult someone for something they said five year ago.

    Anyway, it's a pretty clear meaning, as many of their songs are. I like this one though, it's very pretty. I got the album this tracks is named for, total blind buy, and I think I love every song on it.
