Carrie Newcomer - Stones In The River lyrics

There's a crack in the glass where the water gets out
There's a dusty wind when the heart's in drought
And the map of the world looks as if true north
Disappeared entirely

I can live divided or bent
Conspire in my own diminishment
Or believe in the better world I've dreamt
That grows from inside out

So today I'll drop stones into the river
And the current takes them out into forever
And the truth is most of us will never know
Where our best intentions go
And still I'll drop another stone

So we trust in a dim flashlight
And always walk into available light
I'm not a woman inclined to bet
But it's never failed me yet

So today I'll drop stones into the river
And the current takes them out into forever
And the truth is most of us will never know
Where our best intentions go
And still I'll drop another stone

So today we'll drop stones into the river
And the current takes them out into forever
And the truth is most of us will never know
Where our best intentions go
And still we'll drop another stone

The empty self still hears a call
To live in the center of the ache and awe
It's there the hope of the whole world shines
And yes, there still is time

So today I'll drop stones into the river
And the current takes them out into forever
And the truth is most of us will never know
Where our best intentions go
And still I'll drop another stone
