54-40 – Crossing A Canyon lyrics

Sitting on the edge atop a canyon
I'm a piece of time too small to name
There's a sign that's hanging over me
Let me disappear and try again

I'm no prophet but I've seen things
When right and wrong become
too close
In that moment of my greatness
I become afraid and watch it go

And the day is long
And the bridge is gone
And the river has washed away
The road I'm on
Only road I know

Everybody's got a problem
Something to do with self control
You gotta tell somebody if you
got one
You can't pretend you didn't know

Staring out across the canyon
My eyes won't tell me what to see
If I let go I could be floating
From the river to the sea
If I let go I could be floating
From the river to the sea
