We'll Be Together Again

We're held in the motion as it moves us along
Never knowing quite where it might lead
And from mountain to ocean we try to be strong
Oh we bend to the ultimate need
Of the hopes and fears of the yet to be born
Determined we nourish their seed

If the spirit is willing and the rivers don't rise
And the light doesn't disappear out of our eyes
And adventure stays with us with its pain and surprise
We'll be together again
If the line takes the strain and the rope doesn't break
And the venom stays asleep in the tooth of the snake
And we don't hold against us the mistakes that we made
Oh we'll be together again

Oblivious love when it's clear and it's young
It waits for the chance to shine through
Oh and brother and sister from one we have come
And we wait for the chance to renew
With the dreams and the schemes of innocent years
That ring from the place where we grew
