lyrics

Oh what a thing
To be, swept across the mountains,
To be, swallowed in the canyons,
To be, feasting on the dinner of a king

And oh what a thing
To be, carried on the water,
To be, fed of air and laughter,
To be, singing in the smiles that you bring

But when it’s all said and done, Can I be sure that you’re the one
Will you take me where I want to go, Oh please tell me ‘cause I need to know

Oh what a sight
To have seen the sky of darkness
To have breathed the air of brightness
To have whistled in the shadow of the night

And oh what a pain
To have lent my heart to sadness
To be overcome with madness
To have escaped the good and badness of your game

But when it’s all said and done, Can I be sure that you’re the one
Will you take me where I want to go, Oh please tell me ‘cause I need to know

Things are lookin up again and I know you’re feeling down, It always seems to take so long for the tide to turn around
Thoughts of anything but you are nowhere to be found, Take my hand we’ll reach for higher ground

Oh what a thing
to have held the hand of sorrow
to be waiting for tomorrow
to receive the heart you borrowed for your game

And oh what a thing
To have climbed that distant mountain
To have drunken from the fountain
To have seen behind the curtain of your name

But when it’s all said and done, Can I be sure that you’re the one
Will you take me where I want to go, Oh please tell me ‘cause I need to know
