Up upon a hill
There is a house
An empty book upon an empty shelf
Look out below
I hear them coming up the road

And once upon a time
It was a place
Way back when nobody knew your name
We read the papers everyday

A summer day
It's good to hide yourself away
But if you're gone too long
Soon you're on your way

I'm not sure
If I can go there anymore
Cause when I venture back
It's empty and it's cold

Well there was a stream out there
Like a country fair
It's about to rise again
Just like the way we met
And if you can see your life
Well it's cold as ice
Will you ever walk again
That's not the way it ends

Back around the turn of the century
It was a woman, a child and me
We tracked the land
This little Buddah on our hands
And just before the preacher came to me
She said there's something you should see
You've got some fire left to breathe

So step away
Because you are hungry but you're safe
But if you close your eyes
You'll know just what to say

La La La La La La La

You could be lost
But your in someone else's thoughts

La La La La La La La

Cause we go round
Still as round and round and round
Still it's once away not doubting
Enough to see

Round and round and round and round now
I say
Round and round and round and round now
We go round and round and round and round now
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh
