  • I walk above looking-glass water the reflection that I see
    is another broken mirror another place that’s not for me
    lost in a blackberry winter north out of Tennessee
    I watch the creek roll sideways tip my heart like a boat at sea
    the past fades fast melting in the sun
    shadows crawl we walk time like the river runs
    now it’s gravel brick and stone like we were never here
    still drowning in the memories on the Trail of Tears
    ice silver dawn in Port Royal trying to cross the Ohio
    I heard the wind’s a devil in the places we will go
    bow your head and pray now to the monsters in the stars
    oh Jesus saves in a million ways don’t matter who you are
    the past fades fast melting in the sun
    shadows crawl we walk time like the river runs
    now it’s gravel brick and stone like we were never here
    still drowning in the memories on the Trail of Tears
    do you see me in the streetlights in the old church parking lot
    on a highway bridge on some dark night sleeping with the dogs
    do you see me where the sky meets the bones deep in the ground
    I am the dream of Tennessee I am still around
    the past fades fast melting in the sun
    shadows crawl we walk time like the river runs
    now it’s gravel brick and stone like we were never here
    still drowning in the memories on the Trail of Tears Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
