Kate Wolf – Unfinished Life


It’s an unfinished life that I find lies before me
An open-ended dream and I don’t want to wake
I’ve crossed so many rivers in search of crystal fountains
I’ve found the truest paths always lead through mountains
I’ve seen water on the sky and fire burning on the lake

You said to me
“I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try”

It’s a journey with my soul that I am taking
One that only goes form the cradle to the grave
Going ’round in circles like painted dancing horses
Up and down we ride on the wooden courses
And light from a lover’s eyes is all that I can save

You said to me
“I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try”

So I’ll take the day and run out across the open fields
Where the grass grows high and the shadows fall
Where my eyes can see all the colors in the air
So quiet that the wind whistles in my hair
And takes the rising dust and carries it away

You said to me
“I cannot make you happy like a wounded bird
You must find the strength to fly
Time can paint the treetops with colors of the rainbow
But you cannot find the end, no matter how you try”
