if i drift with the clouds will i be lonely again if i sing with the birds will they ask me to fly with them if i gaze at the stars will i glow with their serenity if i go with the wind will i be forgotten
i'm still a child what i want are dreams and feathered mountains with talking streams a loving friend to hold my hand and an eon of peace in one grain of sand the song of the wind and a day near its end the color of love and God above the dream of my dog as she sleeps through a storm a blazing fire to keep all warm and i'm only a child with only a dream and only my hopes for all these things...
ride on tomorrow i won't see you for awhile and while you're out of sight i'll think of other things when tomorrow becomes today i'll take one and leave the rest never knowing what the others held - the east or the west i can only guess fell out of my bed, put my guitar to my back started out along my way along the railway track. the sun in the sky hit the dew on the rail and a tear was in my eye now i know when you're away from friends there's no good time to cry...so ride on tomorrow i won't see you for awhile and while you're out of sight i can only fake a smile when tomorrow becomes today i'll take one and leave the rest never knowing what the others held - the east or the west i can only guess now that i have chosen i hope my dreams won't die why is it that all good things must end with a tear and a sigh hey the minstrel is a guy he never cries he always sings when i'm alone and you're out of sight i'll think of other things ride on tomorrow i won't see you for awhile and while you're out of sight i can only fake a smile when tomorrow becomes today we 'll take one and leave the rest never knowing what the others held - the east or the west we can only guess
