The Way We're Going

Hear that storm dancing on the river
Shower over me
Rain feels so forgiving
The sky's a canopy
I'm this lonely swimmer leaving part of me
Ripples in the water rolling out to sea

All I know it folding in together
Colors on a run
Fade away forever
The circle's never done
I'm just barely breathing
Face up in the rain
I give in to the living
We seldom know

The way we're going
The seeds we're holding
Let them scatter where they will
There's a dream that's growing
A leaf unfolding
Give it heart and make it real

Far away a world we don't remember
Awaken one by one
All of us together can sparkle in the sun
Then we'll become that river
Waters warm and clean
Precious earth forgive us
And then we'll know

The way we're going
The seeds we're holding
Let them scatter where they will
There's a dream that's growing
A leaf unfolding
Give it heart and make it real

But I know sometimes there is more in life
Is there something more we can do
Let our love flow high and our spirits rise
Let our eyes stay wide shining new, ever new

Hear that storm dancing on the river
Shower over me
Rain feels so forgiving
The sky's a canopy
I'm this lonely swimmer leaving part of me
Ripples in the water rolling out to sea
But now I know

The way we're going
The seeds we're holding
Let them scatter where they will
There's a dream that's growing
A leaf unfolding
Give it heart and make it real
