Watershed - Emily Saliers

    Thought I knew my mind like the back of my hand,
    The gold and the rainbow, but nothing panned out as I planned.
    And they say only milk and honey's gonna make your soul satisfied!
    Well I better learn how to swim
    Cause the crossing is chilly and wide.
    Twisted guardrail on the highway, broken glass on the cement
    A ghost of someone's tragedy
    How recklessly my time has been spent.
    And they say that it's never too late, but you don't get any younger!
    Well I better learn how to starve the emptiness
    And feed the hunger
    Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road
    You can stand there and agonize
    Till your agony's your heaviest load.
    You'll never fly as the crow flies, get used to a country mile.
    When you're learning to face the path at your pace
    Every choice is worth your while.
    Well there's always retrospect to light a clearer path
    Every five years or so I look back on my life
    And I have a good laugh.
    You start at the top, go full circle round
    Catch a breeze, take a spill
    But ending up where i started again makes me wanna stand still.
    Stepping on a crack, breaking up and looking back
    Every tree limb overhead just seems to sit and wait.
    Until every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
