lyrics

There’s only so far a river can run
before your boat,
before your boat hits the shore.
And it’s cryin' streams
but they’re too shallow for your dreams
so you set out on your own once more.

And you think a train never runs out track,
but then it’s at the end of the line.
You think a car could keep on driving,
you run out of gas and then you ask…

There’s only so far a mountain can rise
before you reach
before you reach the peak.
So you can walk each trail
but one day you’ll have to bail
some things are just out of reach.

And you think a train never runs out track,
but then it’s at the end of the line.
You think a car could keep on driving,
you run out of gas and then you ask

Chorus
Is it a lie to say I love you tonight
if I know I will leave some day?
I want to be with you anyways,
for now.
Is it cruel to say you mean the world
when I know mine will keep turning,
turning when you’re gone?

I went further for you...

There’s only so far a fire can burn
Before it fades, before it fades to away.
So whether coal or wood,
it must be understood
when it’s gone you know it’s time to move.
