lyrics

Way up in Elder Mountain
You can remember who you are
You remember the sensation
Of your own beating heart

And way down on the coastline
In the early morning air
I resolve to my intention
To be laying myself bare

And I would love to know
What’s the balance of it all?
Of what we’re carrying inside

Like the part and not the whole
And the nature of us all
And the features that we hide

Take them all for a ride

I found a flower in my notebook
After I had reached my home
It had turned brown and dried all over
But its fragrance struck a note

And I remember one so guarded
Like a chip upon the soul
It’s no good to feel downhearted
Waiting around and getting old

And I would love to know
What’s the balance of it all?
Of what we’re carrying inside

Like the part and not the whole
And the nature of us all
And the features that we hide

And the chances that we take
On the people that we know
And the ones we leave behind

And the hours of the day
And the days that make a year
And the years that build a life

Take them all for a ride
