There is a longing in this soul of mine
Just to leave this world behind
To a better place that's free of pain
Where life and love are kind.
My heart keeps right on beating
As I walk this road alone
Time and place remain the same
As I sit and dig up old bones.
My soul does cry for all that's lost
The world remains the same
This pain is mine and mine alone
There is no one to blame.
My heart and soul together wait
For a different road in a different world
Where life and love is both pain free
And beauty around me swirls.
