Primitive Future (Ferron)

Every person has their story, the one they vamp and revamp There is a way through constant sorrow But we must do more than light the lamp Unlike Zhivago at the window Pining Lara's love We dare not wait the weather to join the high suspended dove Cause yesterday my baby girl walked up to a little boy And I watched her curl her arms around him And transform her fear to joy And if I believe we've blown our purpose Then I might have missed the chance To see Gandhi in two babies' bodies And watch them spin and dance. you gotta go for fire you gotta go for what you know so well you gotta go for why you came this way And Live your story tall and well Maybe you can't believe somehow That things can turn around All your life it just seemed like some were destined upward And some were destined down And it's just not gonna be that simple for us Cause it's not so hard to see That's it's a huge and limitless sky describing what will be. And There might be a disillusioning calm in the winds that blow But believe that changes come Keep your dream, knowing dreams come slow And beat your drum for those before you And for those eager on the side And light a candle for life's still and riotous dream to Dwell where love abides you gotta go for the mystery you gotta go for the high true flight to deny the grace in tragedy is to deny the beauty in the owl's lonesome night you gotta go for fire you gotta go for what you know so well you gotta go for why you came this way and live your story cell to cell to cell If we're in everything we think, and everything we do Then I am in you and you're in me, and only Nothing is as true. There is a way through constant sorrow There is a way through constant sorrow There is a way through constant sorrow
