you once landed on these distant shores
you have walked this road before
now i ask you, i thought you would know
you’ve put your foot down on this road
i heard it from that resting crow
now he’s gonna fly

rounded corners, needle pointing north
to the place where the wind was born
all your courters, and your loyal friends
couldn’t say how this would end
now it’s time to fly

between worlds, and through dreams
it’s not only what we see
more that only where we’ve been
we can’t see it all

turning wild, turning home
to the fields that we did roam
planted seeds that we did sew
at the turning of the tide

now walk that bridge, over the road
and watch that flying crow

over borders, and the golden mean
this is a world i’ve never seen
there is never time to say it all
stories short, tales tall
kneed, stall, then heed the call
when it is your time

clouds and earth, rich with snow
as my foot falls on this road
no one knows how long this goes
so we make the time

turning wild, turning home
to the fields that we will roam
plant the seeds that we will sew
earth and sky are filled with snow
i place my foot upon this road
it’s your face my child will know
and your face my child will show
it’s your face my child will know
every time we smile.

now walk that bridge
over the road
out into the snow
