I know that sound
It's the night train passing
It won't slow down
Like some hope everlasting

Sixty nights in the desert
And the truth is still so far away
Through all kinds of weather
Wake up to the same day

I'm standing on the shoreline
And my life is so far from here
Drink to the end of the bottle
And try to find some cheer

Just you and I
'Cause there's safety in numbers
Two wings to fly
We are lightning and thunder

We stood at the edge of the forest
Daring to see who'd go in
Like trying to join the chorus
But really scared to sing

Standing on the shoreline
And your life is so far from here
So we drink to the end of the bottle
And try to find some cheer

Once you were a dancer
And your dream was loud and clear
And you gave the world an answer
Made the questions disappear

While the world is turning
I don't know if you've been around here
It's a spiritual dessert
And our leaders don't have an idea

I'm standing on the shoreline
And my life is so far from here
So we drink to the end of the bottle
And try to drown this fear

Once you were a dancer
And your dream was loud and clear
And the world is spinning
And spinning and spinning
While we try to find our way out of here
