Look Away

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Hart, Mint Juleps, Adepoju, Hidalgo

Look away, away
Look away, away

Remember the song of the morning
Remember how good it could be
Remember what you always wanted
The world and some way to be free

Thunder at midnight rattles the glass
Reminders in lightning: all things shall pass
Forget it and whisper in sweet harmony
The rapture of wind in a storm at sea

Look away, away
Look away, away

The hole in the pocket, the rip in the sleeve
All the reasons we seek to believe
That something must come of the loss and the pain
Faith may be madness but doubt is insane

One of these nights when opportunity
Beats on the door like the drum of the moon
Break free of the moment, rear back and leap
Roll like the wind on the face of the deep

Look away, away
Look away, away

Remember the song of the evening
Remember how sad it could be
The fear that rose with the thin crescent moon
That we might never be free

Fear dies away with the morning
Sunlight dissolves it to mist
Leaving as some kind of warning
The dark hand of faith to be kissed

Look away, away
Look away, away

This is the land that was spoken about
In the deep heart of music without any doubt
They call it forever, they call it a day
It's neither of those - it just feel that way

With you by my side and the child of our love
Ride on the waves while the starts shine above
Ride on the stars while the waves crash below
Loving each other - away we will go

Away we will go
Away we will go
Away we will go

Look away, away
Look away, away
Look away, away
Look away, away
