mountain goats – never quite free lyrics


it’s all good to learn that right outside your window
there’s only friendly fields and open roads
and you’ll sleep better when you think
you’ve stepped back from the brink
and found some peace inside youself
laid down your heavy load
it gets all right to dream at night
believe in solid skies and slate blue earth below
but when you see him you’ll know

it’s okay to find the faith to saunter forward
with no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
and you’ll breathe easier just knowing that the worst is all behind you
and the waves that tossed the raft all night have set you on dry land
it gets okay to praise the day
believe in sheltering skies and stable earth beneath
but hear his breath come through his teeth

walk by faith
tell no one what you’ve seen

it’s all good to learn that from right here the view goes on forever
and you’ll never want for comfort and you’ll never be alone
see the sunset turning red let all be quiet in your head
and look about, all the stars are coming out
they shine like steel swords
wish me well where i go
but when you see me you’ll know
