ALONG THE HANG

“Just”

Perched on the rocky shore

Along the Mighty River Han

It was there life began I to implore

Past, present, the coming of new dawn

Half-drunk on spirits of lore

Half-drunk on spirits of store

Along the Mighty River Han

In as much fervor and strength live we now

Along the Mighty River Han

The lights, the bridges, silently wondering how

All will fade into nothing, gone

Still yet can I hear the fisherman’s wand

The tiny bells chiming, luring in the beyond

Along the Mighty River Han

Finding solace in an open door

Along the Mighty River Han

My heart, though it be torn

In the current, I find a bond

Winds and waves never waiting more

Out of the sky wanting to pour

Along the Mighty River Han

One day, look we will now

Along the Mighty River Han

Curious to understand what we allow

Strangeness of which we grow fond

Remain us always at war

Unless we are revealed to the core

Along the Mighty River Han.
