Eastmountainsouth – Show Me The River lyrics

I've been a traveler of far away lands
I've got love on my mind, but death on these hands
Come homeward angel, show me the way
Or will fate leave me dead in the tracks where I lay
Show me the river that leads to my home
Back to the one that I love
Show me the wind that constantly blows
And I will fly away, fly away home
Since we were parted I know I have changed
You'll see the blood that was she'd in the lines on my face
But now that I've turned my back on the fight
I'm gonna steal back my life like a thief in the night
I come to you through fire and snow
Over high rolling hills and the valleys below
With all that I've suffered I'm still on this road
And if I hold you again will never let go.
