Ebb And Flow

 By Frank Peter Hermsen

 

I´ve always been told to swim with the stream

To spend my life in the old fashioned way

Of growing up and proving your worth

In being tested every day

But I used to believed in a better world

Believed in a force that noone knows

Cause deep in my doubts a voice on my mind

Said there´s something between ebb and flow

Take my heart and lead me

To the land between ebb and flow

The world between day and night

The place between yes and no

Deep in the forest of my mind

Is a lonely glade behind eternal walls

But each time that I try to understand

The ledder breaks and I can´t help to fall

I use to search for doors or windows

Turn my mind into an object of woe

And deep inside I shurly know

The entrance is between ebb and flow

Take my heart and lead me

To the land between ebb and flow

The world between day and night

The place between yes and no

I do want to meet the power

That makes winter turn into spring

And I want to scale the tower

From which the banshee sings

Yes I do want to meet the man

Who created you and me

Ask him some questions

´Bout how to live how to be

Take my heart and lead me

To the land between ebb and flow

The world between day and night

The place between yes and no
