lyrics

Love and time and thunder
Threaten the canyon deep
Where as a naked traveler
I tried to find some sleep

Shadows crest the mesa
Under clouds of rain
And the flood will cut this canyon
And catch me in this cave

I feel the terror of wide open spaces
And all of the walls of these wild places
I can't climb and I can't divide
The danger and love of your good graces

Across the prairie, over the fields
Through ridges cut from stone
The river rumbles and the river steals
A landscape I once called home

I prayed to a god of wonder
I prayed to a god of grace
I heard the crack of thunder
And he laid my skin to waste

I feel a terror of wide open spaces
And all of the walls of these wild places
I can't climb and I can't divide
The danger and love of your good graces

Lightning strikes the flatlands
A tornado's on the plain
The math that shapes this chaos
Is tangled up with pain

And if the river passes
And if I'm left here alive
Then the hand that shapes the canyons
It wants me to survive

I feel a terror of wide open spaces
And all of the walls of these wild places
I can't climb and I can't divide
The danger and love of your good graces
