Alli Rogers – Carry A Light lyrics

I've left you a gift on the riverbank
Go bring it to me here
And when you do we'll look it through
And then it will be clear
That currents move and shape the sand
That winds can blow you far
That words aren't always hard to find
But tended harbors are
You may be fearless may be right
But when the day gives way to night
Carry a light with you
Carry a light with you
Into the night with you
A light with you
We've shared our meals by the firelight
Now let the fire die
Go wrap yourself in the winter moon
You and the evening sky
But remember that the monuments
Were once in someone's hand
That soldiers walk the battlefields
That farmers work the land
So raise yourself to your full height
But when the day gives way to night
You may be fearless may be right
You may have fires yet to light
You may have stories to tell
You may have rivers to cross
You may have courage to fight
