Every Step

First and the last
Well the road it is long
And my strides getting short
And the wind at my back
It has circled around
And my partner’s gone
Took the fork at the bend
That ones gonna make it
Will be worth it in the end.

Lift that pick from your chest
Let you heart not be forlorn
It takes mountains of coal
‘fore a diamond is born
Lift your head from your hands
Lend your eyes to the East
With the first light of dawn
Comes a prisoner released

Sometimes I wonder
Why Hope and Delight
Is a train that passes
Full speed in the night
A Fading Whistle
Sobers me then
I’m staring at my shoes
On the platform again

[Break]
Dawn, it is now
Found a diamond in my hand
For my eyes they are open
The land is alive
If its light is upon me
And I am alright
Every step I make
Is the first and the last
Every step make is the first and the last.
