lyrics

Follow my feet beneath the tall trees
Their backs are stooped low with the weight of dead leaves
But they're, letting them go and weightless they fall
To paint the road a river

Reflections pass as I row quietly
The waters a mirror for my lost memories
I dip the oar, and the picture is blurred
My arms grow weary and the rustling wind stirs
To carry me, to the arms of the shore

So I wanna know what the seasons know
There’s a time to reap and a time to sow
A time to hold on and a time to let go
Teach me to trust when I don't see

There's so much to be learned from the days gone by
I will look down on the river unwinding
You've carried me this far you won't let me go
Not in the heat of December
Or the cold July snow

On my way home to the fireplace
The wind it's stinging my, flinted face
It whispers ‘Release’, so I open my hands
And scatter my worries into its breath
As I wade through autumns tide
Teach me to trust, when I don’t see
To love always, as you have loved me
To lay down my life to be set free
To guard my heart in your peace
