Three days on a mountain
Never walked this way alone
The moonlight my companion
She has weathered this before

I’m a lost, wayfaring stranger
Feeling small in the world below
All the riches can’t be gathered
To fill this aching, fill this hole

And I’ve never seen the lilac
blooming on the hill so high
And I’ve always prayed for daylight
Now I love the evening sky

I come searching for something greater
All this restlessness takes its toll
I may stumble, Lord knows I may falter
Now I’m stronger, this I know


Chorus (x2)
