Rowaway

Sam Perry

 

 

 

 

 

Searching the stars for a sign to look for

Wandering paths of the dead

Wearing the road the untold walked before

Who now live as shapes in our heads

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Back to the sea where you formed

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Don't fear the fire or storm

 

Listening deep to the sounds of the past

Timbre of chirps in the night

Tools that the ancestors gave me I grasp

Prepared now to dig or take flight

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Follow the stream in the sky

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

The stream runs between the divide

 

Fish see the starlight embedded in waves

We see as if from a well

Great as the fish are the lives that we make

Greater, the stories we tell

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Walk when the river is low

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Wherever you're going you'll go

 

All of the darkness, all of the light

Time out of time folds us in

A star in the sky for each ancestor's life

With one voice they beckon Begin

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Feel, listen, heer

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Away from all falsehood and fear

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Seek peace be kind and make good

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Tend talents and fire and wood

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

Stand tall breathe deep and be true

Rowaway rowaway rowaway now

All of us will row with you
