I am one more pilgrim
On this road low and high
Through this land of miracles
I've been traveling all night

I tangled with the darkness
I swear at moments I was blind
Til the dawn came up around me
And I could see the way unwind

     I am the road behind me
     I am the road ahead
     Lifted by this rocky ridge
     cradled by the river bed

     A harmony of motion
     Through the wide expanse of time
     Sunlight through the heavens
     Watch it shine
     Watch it shine

They say there's iron in these mountains
And in bone and skin and mud
They say that iron only comes from stars
So stars are in my blood

Red and blue and purple
The shadows grow and fade
Spreading all directions
From where it all was made

     I am the road behind me
     I am the road ahead
     Lifted by this rocky ridge
     cradled by the river bed

     A harmony of motion
     Through the wide expanse of time
     Sunlight through the heavens
     Watch it shine
     Watch it shine
     Watch it shine
     Watch it shine
