Waterboys – Higher Bound lyrics

Well, I'm easy to love
but I'm harder to hold
Down through this earth
my story is told
I'm a wheeling and a-winding down
every road and every town
I'm tumbling through the years
Higher bound!

I've as many eyes
as ever were
And though I'm older
than the world
I am the very youngest thing
that ever did breath upon a pearl
I am a coat of many colours
with the coronation stone and the crown
I'm tumbling through the years
Higher bound!

I'm the song of the river
speeding unceasing to the sea
I'm alive!
I'm in love!
Each and every time
there's some for me
My head is in the stars
my feet are on the ground
I'm tumbling through the years
Higher bound!

I filled the hall
at Bru na Boine
I saw the rose
of mystery
I've been a fish
upon a coin
I'll never be...
I'll meet you on the mountain
when the mountain time comes around
I'm tumbling through the years
Higher bound!
I'm dancing through the years
Higher bound!
