Hey, look how far we've come, do we know who we are?
Stranded on a mountain top trying to catch a falling star
Here's to what we've left behind us, here's to what we've kept inside
May the road that lies before us lead to a place where love abides

I went walking with my baby through the early morning frost
Saw three crosses by the roadside where three young souls were lost
I guess they're flying with the angels,
Jesus took them for a ride high above the Rio Grande,
They'll find a place where love abides

You may cross the barren desert, you must walk your path alone
But a sudden storm may blind you, shake your spirit to the bone
Seeking shelter for a weary heart, somewhere to rest, somewhere to hide
Then somewhere down that troubled road
You find a place where love abides

Our people came across the water with their fearful untamed hearts
Standing on a foreign shoreline, praying for a brand new start
Hand in hand across the mountains and the ragin' rivers wide
'til they've reached the distant ocean or found a place where love abides

You may cross the barren desert, you might walk your path alone
But a sudden storm may blind you, shake your spirit to the bone
Seeking shelter for a weary heart, somewhere to rest, somewhere to hide
Then somewhere down that troubled road
You find a place where love abides

Hey, look how far we've come, do we know who we are?
Stranded on a mountain top trying to catch a falling star
