lyrics

and we laid those stones, one by one
it was our work, but now the work is all done
and looking back on where life's sun shone
it's just a long walk to get us home

cut the footpath across the ridges - quarry stone to build the bridges
lay the stairs one on top of the other - on a footpath you travel farther

how it happened, i cannot say
i made the road and the road led me on that way
out of the shade from the lazy tree
i can't stay there, can't be there - how could i be ?

cut the footpath across the ridges - quarry stone to build the bridges
lay the stairs one on top of the other - on a footpath you travel farther

each of us walking uncertain ground
with something simple to learn and something profound
hardly hoping our course is clear
'you're a pioneer on a new frontier'

hold steady, hold true - one step at a time will do
out of the shade from the lazy tree
i can't be there, can't stay - how could i be ?
hold steady, hold true - one step at a time will do
it could lead to the baking sun
but you can't stop now your path has begun

and we laid those stones, one by one
it was our work, but now the work is all done
and looking back on where life's sun shone
it's just a long walk to get us home

cut the footpath across the ridges - quarry stone to build the bridges
lay the stairs one on top of the other - on a footpath you travel farther

each of us walking uncertain ground
with something simple to learn and something profound
hardly hoping our course is clear
'you're a pioneer on a new frontier'

hold steady, hold true one step at a time will do
it could lead to the baking sun
but you can't stop now, your path has begun
