On And On It Goes Submit Correct Lyrics

River starts with a drop of rain somewhere in this world
Light years shape this arc of sky and sand, a precious pearl and
You will light a stranger's life by letting yours unfurl

On and on it goes, sparks upon the wind
Like a July 4th, a crown of stars and a good time grin
On and on it flies on a new bird's wing
In a beating heart, the moon that rose and the gift of spring

You can say that you'll never matter lose or win
World won't care, and it's hard to bear such a lonely wind
But you can change a stranger's life by letting yours begin

And on and on it goes, chances everywhere
Like the train you took and the rain that fell on the summer air
And on and on it flies like the time we've lost
It's either running out or covering all our dreams in rust

Every night the TV shows one more bad day's news
A world away from what I know and what I do
But I could save a stranger's life if I had a clue

And on and on it goes, attention must be paid
Before it seems we're one soul short and a second late
And on and on it flies across the stratosphere
At the speed of love, if you stop and feel it you will hear

On and on it goes, sparks upon the wind
Like a July 4th, the crown of stars and a good time grin
On and on it flies on a new bird's wing
In a beating heart, the moon that rose and the gift of spring
