Mary Chapin Carpenter - Elysium lyric

Ringtones Ringtone: Send Elysium Ringtone to your Cell Phone!

I don't really know how I got here this time

I was only just following orders

Listening to the voice in my mind

Saying steer clear of margins and borders

So I wasn't thinking of where we would go

On a could afternoon through the mountains we drove

Up a few hairpin turns and then spread out below

The valley appeared with the sun

Like Elysium

I looked out the window and stared at the fields

Where the blue sky and green were colliding

I looked back at you and I knew we were sealed

By a fate that has ways of providing

Yes sometimes you get there in spite of the route Losing
track of your life and what it's about

The road seems to know when to straighten right out

The closer you come

To Elysium

They say there's a place for those who are good

With it's pearly gates swinging wide open

The rest of us here are just knocking on wood

Quietly, piously hoping

I could wonder if all of it led me to you

I could show you the arrows and circles I drew

I didn't have a map, it's the best I could do

On the fly and on the run

To dreams that were tethered like kites to the ground

To the bridges I burned, to then turning around

It was here in your heart I was finally found

And the last battle won for Elysium
