The Elemental Line
written by Gary Marks © 1990 Arewea Co. ASCAP

Traveling up the big dark mountain we fear the longest fall.
Sun rising in the valley. colors dawning bold, wind dies at my shoulder.

And I've tried to feel home everywhere I go,
but nothing seems to be open horizon of blue.

Oh, the call is strong,
the elemental line drawing me back deeper into you
Racing straight through my heart
leading me back home to you; home to you.

For love of chance and complication, streaming colors all.
A life of dreams whispered low,
like windy strokes of paint, colors layered over.

And I've tried to carry on, observe where I've gone
and show my restless eyes yet still another view.

But the call is so strong
the elemental line sweeping me back deeper into you.
Racing straight through my heart
leading me back into you.
Love that calls through the time
drawing me back home to you; home to you.

Solo

Oh, but no one tumbles back to you
no one stumbles back to you.
It's a slow and graceful
movement like a sail blown through the sea.

And the call is so strong
The elemental line
drawing me back deeper into you.
Racing straight through my heart
leading me back into you.
Love that calls through the time
calling me back home to you.
Home to you.
