Lyrics

Chorus 1:

This says this song we must sing as we sail into tomorrow

Some are taken, some stay ‘cause a lock bars the way

And to give is the key, not to borrow

 

Chorus 2:

This says this song we must sing, that we celebrate what lives long

It’s not the ages we reach but the lessons we teach

So that every human heart serves its song

 

There is a mark of kindness in everyone you know

Measure the yield by the way it’s revealed

Haltingly, or gauged to grow?

(chorus 1)

 

A friend of mind brought vision into this void we roam

He sought music to fill in time others just kill

It called to him, and called him home

(chorus 2)

 

Creating definition’s like mining the spiral in life’s spin

Winding in doubt trying to figure it out

Over and over and over again

(chorus 1)

 

This says this song we must sing, that we celebrate what lives long

That before our days are gone we remind and pass on

That every human heart must serve its song

So that every human heart can serve this song
