Lyrics

SOLO:
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

CHORUS:
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

SOLO:
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

(Oooh)

Chorus (x2)
