Kate MacLeod - Red Rock
I’ve arrived here on the only road
I am the only one on the only road I see
I’ll trade my modern artifacts for time in the red rock country
The solo flight of the bird is the only thing that moves now
And the breeze picks up where the bird takes off
And through a lonely tree sounds
Here red rock, I’m here red rock
I meet your echoing your ancient theme
The grains of sand that line the canyons and fill the mines
Are a small example of the time
That it takes to make a world wise
They are a small example of the time
That it takes to make a rock smooth
And a true example of the power of small when they get in my shoes
Here red rock, I’m here red rock
I meet your echoing your ancient theme
Here the wind blows through my heart
Like a desert maid trying to clean a home
And the layers of rock have made some shelves
For me to rest my thoughts on
The whirlpools of color will deepen
When the rain falls off the stone
And if it rains long and hard enough
Well then here comes the water’s song
Here red rock, I’m here red rock
I meet your echoing your ancient theme
