It's a long trip alone over sand and stone
That lie along the road that we all must travel down

So maybe you could walk with me a while
And maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Everybody stumbles sometimes and needs a hand to hold
'Cause it's a long trip alone

It's a short piece of time but just enough to find
A little peace of mind under the sun somewhere

So maybe you could walk with me a while
And maybe I could rest beneath your smile
I know we can't afford to let one moment pass us by
'Cause it's a short piece of time

And I don't know where I'd be without you here
'Cause I'm not really me without you there

Yea Yeah

So maybe you could walk with me a while
Maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Everybody stumbles sometimes and needs a hand to hold

So maybe you could walk with me a while
Maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Maybe I could feel you right beside me 'til I'm home
'Cause it's a long trip alone

    After a love has died (for me 22 years of my life) and your feeling lost and alone. Stumbling around in the dark, tripping over the rocks. Tryin to make sense of things, tryin to get your bearings back. And one day, after being alone for months on end someone walks into your life. You again see that glimmer of sunshine. Only this time because you are no longer 20 and going to live forever, you KNOW how short a piece of time it really is. So please Robert... come and walk with me a while. ~Artful Soul
