Great Divide

I can see the valley, I can see the road we used to climb

I can see the mountains, leering on the other side

And on and on and on and on it goes

I can hear the echo, I can hear the song we used to sing

I can feel the distance, livin' in the between

And on and on and on and on it goes

All these moments, get lost inside my head

Carry on to find the strength in your eyes

Every fray we've fought all the things we've lost

Makes us strong in time as we cross the great divide

Can you hear the rhythm, Can you feel our hearts begin to beat

Rising from the ashes

Like a train that's gathering steam, And on and on and on and on it goes

In the cannon fire we creshendo


And every time we were close to giving up

When the weight of the works was bearing down on us

You kept you hand in mine
