lyrics

Well I was only seventeen
I found myself caught in between
What you could say was life and fantasy
That crooked road seemed all too steep
It stretched beyond what I could see
And left a thousand fallen in its path

But at last I saw the future
Every moment that could be
Oh I found that life was waiting there for me

I knew that I could get there someday
Had to try and find my own way
No one else could tell me what to do
But like so many there before me
Failure wrote another story
Left behind a humbled broken soul

But at last I saw the future
Every moment that could be
Oh I found that life was waiting there for me

Only for a moment I'd forgotten why we came
Not unlike my father mighty mountains call my name
Oh the explanations and excuses we could find
But unlike my father those mighty mountains I will climb

I will run
Through the valley below
Let's get drunk
From the river it holds
As the sun
Leads the way
And the light begins to fade
Only now I remember why we came

It's strength we find when we are weak
It's faith that moves the tallest peak
And love that lasts for long after we're gone
But few can truly know the cost
And all who wander are not lost
For love will lead the tired and troubled home

'Cause at last I see the future
Every moment that can be
And I've found that life is waiting here for me

I will run
Through the valley below
Let's get drunk
From the river it holds
As the sun
Leads the way
And the light begins to fade
Only now I remember why we came
