Lyrics

verse 1

the sky is dark
without a star
inspired lark
eager guitar
soon the sun will supply its spark

guests are asleep
on all the floors
the past is deep
behind closed doors
and all is quiet in the house

the moon was down
the night was black
you wore your frown
on the road back
there was no way out of the town

the rock was loud
the words hit hard
there was no mercy for the proud

verse 2

early riser
the day is young
thwarted dreamer
your gift unsung
your moment comes seize the hour

the girl is fair
the prize seems far
the path is there
strum your guitar
make melodies lighten the air

every two days
another song
stave off delays
you can't go wrong
there must be music all along

no other way
to solve your plight
you must keep doing what is right

verse 3

have no regrets
but keep the score
as the sun sets
on the north shore
harmonize better than before

don't fret for what
tomorrow brings
sing what you've got
and pluck the strings
this is a chance to get your wings

steadfast persist
in what is wise
and soon enough you'll taste the prize

chorus

be glad to get a breath of fresh air in the abode of the blessed
they have a bed waiting for you enjoy the rest
and they'll take care of you until you're ready to resume your quest
they'll give you time to build a bridge to the west

last chorus

be glad to get a breath of fresh air in the abode of the blessed
they have a bed waiting for you enjoy the rest
they'll take good care of you until you're ready to resume your quest
they'll give you time to build a bridge to the west

you'll always remember the abode of the blessed
there you will learn that you deserve to have the best
should you ever need to they'll help you through your test
and provide all you need to make it to the crest

you will always remember the abode of the blessed
