You only know the way
You only know the way
In your heart
O lonesome traveller
But you don’t know where to start
You only know the way
You only know the way in your heart
O lonesome traveller of love

So I Picture you in solitude
In a shack on the peaks
Hozomeen stares bleakly
While you fill another pot of coffee
Then you feel the breeze

of the northern winds
The chill it calms
and takes you in
the bears listening
lakes a glistenin’
in the valley below
Only you know
Why you chose to be alone

In desolation, angel.

I See you as a brakeman
Midnight ghost’s a whailin’
So brazen on the trail
Of the railroad, lives are taken.
Spirits awaken
In the high sierras
Beyond the pines of maple
We find our saviour
Only to be taken
In meditation, your only vocation to be a saint

In desolation, angel.
