I step onto the roadway

Feet upon the sand

Choosing one direction

Reaching for your hand

Will you walk beside me?

Will you lead the way?

Will you follow closely

And guide me when I stray?


Stay near when the hours

Are fast disappearing

And all I am fearing

Is blocking my view

Stay near when the pieces

Just won't fit together

Stay near me forever

As I'll stay near you


I stand upon the mountain

High above the earth

Seeking destinations

Finding place of birth

Will you share my vision?

Will you guide my sight?

Will you let me see things

That vanish in the light?


Stay near when the hours

Are dark and uncertain

And open the curtain

To let in the new

Stay near when the fires

Are mostly remembered

Stay near in the ember

As I'll stay near you


There is someone with me

This is something new

Now there's someone with me

We will need you too


We step into the river

The water sets us free

Guided by the current

Down toward the sea

Can we float together?

Would you guide our course?

Will you then release us

To see the mighty source?


Stay near when the sunshine

Gives light everlasting

The shadows we're casting

Will dance two-by-two

Stay near when the wonders

Are still multiplying

Stay near while we're flying

As we'll stay near you
