and it feels like forever since I’ve been close to you.
My friends up above me don’t understand why I struggle like I do.
The shadow’s my only, only companion and at night he leaves too.
Down in the valley dying of thirst
Now down in the valley it seems that I’m at my worst.
My consolation is that you baptize this Earth.
I’m down in the valley, valleys fill first.
Down in this wasteland I miss the mountaintop view
But it’s here in this valley that I’m surrounded by you.
Though i’m not here by my will it’s where your view is most clear
So I’ll stay in this valley if it takes forty years.
