Van Dyke Parks – Many A Mile To Go lyrics

Many a mile to go and promise to keep
And I'm falling asleep
I don't wanna go to sleep, I don't wanna
To sleep, I don't wanna
I'm dreamin this dream and it's not very clear
The reason I'm there or why am I here
I'm thinkin I'm sinkin and I wanna know
When we're not here oh where do we go

Do not forsake me my dear
I let you go out when the coast become clear
To the wild blue and beyond
I'd tell you more if I'd been
Where no one been before

Do not forsake me my dear
I won't forsake you my son
Be by your side that day my race had been run
Till then it's all up to you
You take a part of my heart
As you start to slip through

We find that faraway shore
We have to say goodbye nevermore
We leave behind our certain-for-sure
To me it seems like dreaming

Mine is but to do or die
And never want for the reason why
We just set sail up into the sky
To me it seems like flying

Why oh why the sky
Why oh why is it blue and why am I me
Ttell me why are you you
Why are you hoo
Like why is there right and why is there wrong
And why does the weak go along with the strong
Gotta get along, and why is night
It feels like a fright
Oh and where is the light
That wuz burnin so bright
Burnin so bright
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen
Do not forsake me my dear
