lyrics

Stuck in Fort George after dark
Watching planes in the sky leaving trails in my mind
Wish I could close my eyes and be up there
Way up in the air to get a new perspective
I could get out of this head
I need to find a place to rest I need to crawl back into bed
I could make sense of this mess
Maybe find two ends that meet, get some air beneath my feet

Before I lay these dreams aside I'll leave a trail so I can find them again someday

Somebody told me not to worry about tomorrow that tomorrow can take care of himself
Sometimes I worry that tomorrow doesnt know what he is doing, so I worry about him
I need more faith in your plan
Keep in step with your spirit find your presence and draw near it
In God I trust I will not be afraid
In God whose word I praise

Before I lay these dreams aside I'll leave a trail so I can find them again someday

I'm sorry for the moments when I praise God and then curse his image-bearers
I'm sorry when I think my hands are just as big as yours
I'm truly sorry that I can't be everything to everybody all of the time
All of the time

Before I lay these dreams aside I'll leave a trail so I can find them again someday
