Allan Taylor - Simple Truths



I'll take you to the hills, old man
And there I'll set you free
I know they mean as much to you
As you have meant to me
I promised you as such, old man
I owe that much to you
I'll cast you to the wind, old man
It's all that's left to do

We only learn the simple truths
When time is on its way
Each moment comes more precious as
It slowly slips away
Time again for me to say
The words that never came
Time again for you to know
I needed just the same

A solitary skylark calls
The corn sways in the winds
The sun sweeps slowly westward as
Another day begins
I'll walk the hills again, old man
This time I'll walk alone
And you can rest in peace, old man
Now all is said and done
I'll walk the hills again, old man
This time I'll walk alone
And you can rest in peace, old man
Now all is said and done
