Birch Book – New Joy lyrics

Coming 'round the bend over the high life
Never seeing where the signs have marked the trail
The Lovers find their ways in rough surrender
Never knowing where the wind will blow their sails

I don't know that things were ever meant to be easy
Don't know how thus far I've managed to get on
I don't know that you could see this life through my eyes
I don't know that I could show you in a song

This much I know: with love comes sorrow
This much is plain: with new joy, new pain

Of course it's clear looking back in hindsight
That old fantasy of freedom bound to fall
But looking in the mirror there's an open road
Pack it up say goodbye to them all

Have you got a light to give a weary traveler?
Have you got a lift for one who's fallen down?
Have you got a smile to show a broken hearted man
Who knows not where he's bound?

This much I know: with love comes sorrow
This much is plain: with new joy, new pain
