Rosanne Cash – The Undiscovered Country lyrics
[Verse 1]
All those who go before us
The mothers and the kings
Shakespeare and my father
Who kick dust up in my dreams
If you're too close to the voices
You can stray far from the track
So goodbye, my friends
It's my turn to won't look back

[Verse 2]
The ghosts have had their moment
Now they fade into the sun
Shining like a carousel
When summer's just begun
Bonded for their silence
And I threw away the key
Someone's going down
But it's not me

[Chorus 1]
All because I'm thankful for what we don't understand
The undiscovered country between a woman and a man

[Verse 3]
All those who follow after
Are children who we pledge
To a story of some sailors
Who float beyond the edge
To their little old box of wishes
We want them to retire
Just beyond their grasp
And plain desires

[Verse 4]
The old men never helped us
They took our every vow
Turned them into money
And look where we are now
Waiting for a savior
But she walks alone to sea
And someone's going down
She went down for me

[Chorus 2]
And still she says she's thankful for what we don't understand
The undiscovered country in every woman, every man

[Verse 5]
Some day will come the questions
With no answers, but we ask
Just the same when we were children
Which was sweet but doesn't last
From the undiscovered country
We hear the old refrain
The sky is blue
For the few who remain

[Chorus 3]
All because I'm thankful for the things we never planned
The undiscovered country in every woman, every man
Raise a glass, be thankful for what we don't understand
The undiscovered country between a woman and a man
