Where I'll Meet You

lyrics

so we loaded up the van choked through see you next times
Ive learned that there is nothing like a rearview goodbye
the wave of a hand the flicker of the light
fleeting as an echo in the valley nearby

each headlight I stare down each blowing whistle train
is a face I can remember is a time I can’t reclaim
is just a stepping stone on a path that shows no end
winding through the spirit like an endless river bend

so we take what we can get as we make ourselves a home
through this woven coincidence we roam
so my mind will meet my body down by the river side
where the distant wind and the far off stars collide
that’s where ill meet you when we die

and we curse a god above some place to lay the blame
for the unending suffering that comes from being awake
and the parallels that form but the lines they don’t collide
to live is to be mad and pulled at from each side

So we trip in time with change and this trip is looking strange
a crick from looking back when the wind is at our face
the duality of time, the future and the past
eyes are wet with clarity we are here and now at last

so we take what we can get as we make ourselves a home
through this woven coincidence we roam
so my mind will meet my body down by the river side
where the distant wind and the far off stars collide
that’s where ill meet you when we die
