sandhill cranes

We have traveled so far / just to see what we will find / we get out of the car / leave the highway signs behind / there’s a lake like a mirror / that reflects the mountain chain / as my love draws me near / we become two sandhill cranes / well we live in the town / and we work both night and day / cast in debt / sinking down / we could fret out lives away / bound by fear / torn by form / fettered down by gross restrain / we return to be born / and become two sandhill cranes / I can feel the wind beneath my feathers / and it’s brighter than the sun / that keeps the searching stars in flame / we will come together / up above the mountain heather / and the measure of our flight / will be the same / now my love knows the wind / and her wings are bowed in grace / oh so slow we ascend / on the lakes reflecting face / there are clouds on the shore / in the reeds red daylight rains / we have come home to soar / and become two sandhill cranes / we have come home to soar / and become two sandhill cranes.
