Wishing Well

From the album Sea-Change © 2018 Hurricane Music Company

There’s a wishing well beyond the hill
My heart is heavy but it’s beating still

I follow the river through the wooded way
Where branches are made green by light of the sun
And golden waters flow sending ripples to the bay
The ocean never knowing spring and tide are one

The blackbird sings alone it echoes through the vale
The peace is slow but it does come
The multitude abreast fighting for a sale
The mountain we climb hides the winter sun

There’s a wishing well beyond the hill
My heart is heavy but it’s beating still
There’s a wishing well beyond the hill
My heart is heavy but it’s beating still

Come with me my friend and burrow down this track
Where few have tread the leafy way
We do not look below the wind is at our backs
And to the wind we begin to say…

‘Here we are, as we stand
Foot to foot and hand in hand
Know not where were going but together it will be
The river ever flowing somehow always finds the sea’

There’s a wishing well beyond the hill
My heart is heavy but it’s beating still
There’s a wishing well beyond the hill
My heart is heavy but it’s beating still

But it’s beating still
But it’s beating still
But it’s beating still
