lyrics

My hands are bloody
They can’t be forgiven
Alone and I’m destined to roam
My shoes are muddy,
A long walk from heaven
I'm tired and I’m restless for home

I’ll clear a place for you,
Deep in old forests
Forever beside me you’ll lay
Eternity waits for you,
Secrets before us
We're crossing the river to stay

If I roam in my life
Then I'll roam in my death
Old men go like a fire
Couldn't get no rest

In the night they roam
Singing songs of desperation
No one knows
If they'll ever find their home
As the cold winds blow
I can hear the voices calling
Let me go
Let the water take my soul

Over the mountain
I'll follow the spirit
To places that we've never seen
Where time has forgotten
To keep true it’s promise
With everything that's ever been

There I will wait for you
Deep in the wilderness
Lost like the stories of old
Out there among them
I'll wander the wastes with
No way to get out of the cold

If I roam in my life
Then I'll roam in my death
Old men go like a fire
Couldn't get no rest

In the night they roam
Singing songs of desperation
No one knows
If they'll ever find their home
As the cold winds blow
I can hear the voices calling
Let me go
Let the water take my soul
