~ You’ll Be There ~

Well, hope is an anchor and love is a ship
Time is the ocean and life is a trip
You don't know where you're goin'
‘Til you know where you're at
And if you can't read the stars
Well, you better have a map
A compass and a conscience
So you don't get lost at sea
Around some old lonely island
Where no one wants to be

From the beginning of creation
I think our Maker had a plan
For us to leave these shores
And sail beyond the sand
And let the Good Light guide us
Through the waves and the wind
To the beaches in a world
Where we have never been
We'll climb up on the mountain, y'all
We'll let our voices ring
When those who've never tried it
They'll be the first to sing

Oh, my, my
I'll see you on the other side . . .
If I make it
And it might be a long hard ride
But I'm gonna take it
Sometimes it seems that
I don't have a prayer
I let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I wanna go
Where the streets are gold
'Cause you'll be there
Oh, my, my

Well, you don't bring nothin'
With you here
And you can't take nothin' back
I ain't never seen a hearse
With a luggage rack
So I've torn my knees up prayin'
Scarred my back from fallin' down
Spent so much time flyin' high
‘Til I'm face first in the ground
So if you're up there watchin' me
Would you talk to God and say
Tell Him I might need a hand
To see you both some day

Oh, my, my
So I'll see you on the other side . . .
If I make it
And it might be a long hard ride
But I wanna take it
Sometimes it seems that
I don't have a prayer
I let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I wanna go
Where the streets are gold
'Cause you'll be there
Oh, my, my
'Cause you'll be there
Oh, my, my
