Lyrics

CANYON
Words by Dana Lyons
Music by Dana Lyons and Jesse Wolf Hardin

I close my eyes and listen to the music through the night
The river’s song, the gentle breeze, the whispering leaves tonight

I lie upon the river’s sand, and with my hands I feel
I feel the smooth stone of the canyon walls
And then the canyon calls to me

I try to stand, but then I stumble
A humbled man I kneel upon the ground
I smell the land, and I wonder
How any land can smell as sweet as you

And then the tears of joy begin to flow
Tears that I’ve never known before
They fall to Earth along with gentle rain washing away the pain
I wore

I try to stand, but then I stumble
A humbled man I kneel upon the ground
I try to speak, but my words crumble
For words cannot express the love I feel

And when I rise and start to walk back home
I do not walk alone tonight
I smell the air, I watch the sparkling sky
So good to be alive tonight
