Lyrics

This Young Man

You hold your hand out you’re calling me across the water
I tiptoe on the edge of earth I see the drop
We walk along the edge our laughter falls away beneath us
Ripples through all time two more children skirt the rocks

This young man knows that he can walk upon the water
This young man knows that he’ll make diamonds out of sand
This young man knows his lucky life will last forever
This young man comes and takes my future in his hands

Caution whipping in the wind released it blows across the water
We turn our backs we’re running miles along the beach
You pull me close to you we love our lives we love each other
Drinking in the sunshine each dream within our reach

This young man thinks that he can walk upon the water
This young man thinks that he’ll make diamonds out of sand
This young man thinks his lucky life will last forever
This young man says he holds my future in his hands

Shadows lengthen a chill comes down upon the water
The sand is blowing stinging drifting deep as snow
The walk is getting long I lag behind I’m looking down
The sun is sinking and there are many miles to go

This young man’s trying hard to walk upon the water
This young man’s trying to make diamonds out of sand
This young man hopes his lucky life will last forever
This young man tries to wash my future in his hands

This young man’s trying hard to walk upon the water
This young man’s trying to make diamonds out of sand
This young man hopes his lucky life will last forever
This young man tries to wash my future in his hands
