Farthest Shore (lyrics) by David Wilcox

We were there in the woods, by the water.
We left our packs up against that willow tree.
We dove right in, keeping just what we were born with,
Our Memories, our Knowledge and our Dreams.

As I swam away from our possessions,
I imagined that they were gone forever more.
And for once I was glad that all I treasured
Would still be with me as I reached other shore.

So…Let me dive into the water,
Leave behind all that I’ve worked for,
Except what I remember and believe.
And, when I stand on the farthest shore,
I will have all I need

After the blaze burned our cabin down to ashes…
Where we’d slept warm, now the sky lets in the rain.
I found the strings, frets and rusted latches,
But I will never hear that old guitar again.
These four walls are only in my memory,
Where these stone steps rise to nothing in the air…
So one last look and I’m headed for the river
To wash my hands and try to say this prayer.

So…Let me dive into the water,
Leave behind all that I’ve worked for,
Except what I remember and believe.
And, when I stand on the farthest shore,
I will have all I need

When my time to live this life is over,
I’ll tip my hat when I think about that swim.
And of all the things that make a life worth living
That only come to those who dive right in

So…Let me dive into the water,
Leave behind all that I’ve worked for,
Except what I remember and believe.
And, when I stand on the farthest shore,
I will have all I need

All I need…..
Let me dive into the water…
It’s all I need….
