Once moved mountains
Now in the rear view mirror
Divine compromise has taken root
Hand held and guided
To each destination
Robbed of my powers but not of my mind
What's left behind is left behind

The promise in your eyes
Is what I remember
Forbidden yet so tempting
Oh I surrender
The knock on the door had us
Jumpin' out of our skins
I couldn't take it anymore
What's left behind is left behind

There's a light upon the river
From the new moon in the east
It shines way down the valley
And gives me peace
It's the light and the river
They give me peace

The winds that blow
All around here are constant
Up from the south they blow warm and strong
Last year they blew off
My neighbor's roof
It's still layin' in that old open field
What's left behind is left behind

There's a light upon the river
From the new moon in the east
It shines way down the valley
And gives me peace
It's the light and the river
They give me peace

There's a graveyard
In the mountain
Covered in snow
The stones lie there in silence
Beneath the ground
Chalk white bones
The souls circle the sun
They play with the moon
Live amongst the stars
Their reflections on the river
Are gifts to your heart

You have those days
When the truth be told
S'like rollin' and stumblin'
Fallin' down a old gopher hole
Storm overhead lets loose its
Hail and lightning
Weathered and worn torn and afraid
And what's left behind
Is left behind
