Yukon

Yukon

 

My anvil eyes await the sight of gold //

And my hands are weary from a hard day’s work //

I grow impatient when my words are hushed

By a thread of fire exploding in the dark

 

It wasn’t easy leaving

But I will promise you

a brand new life together

and as you wait this through

every night the midnight sun forgets to set I’ll think of you

 

they’ll see it in my eyes

they’ll hear it in my song

my conviction that together’s how we both belong

Come and brave the Yukon, come and brave the Yukon

 

I’ve seen the east I’ve seen the west

I wrote from every town I left

It’s not too soon it’s not too soon

 

 

6 years I’ve counted all the days gone by

Through cold winters where the night was all I knew

I was on water when the ship first sailed

Now there’s ground beneath a home that waits for two

I’ve seen the east i’ve seen west

I’ve wrote from every town I’ve left

and it’s not too late it’s not too late

 

It wasn’t easy leaving

But I will promise you

a brand new life together

and as you wait this through

every night the midnight sun forgets to set I’ll think of you

 

they’ll see it in my eyes

they’ll hear it in my song

my conviction that together’s how we both belong

Come and brave the Yukon, come and brave the Yukon
