What to do with this unrelenting feeling of urgency
What to say when the crack of a gun splits the night
Waking you up from sweet dreams to a fear that's festering
To the slow march of madness, to the call to take flight
Pack your bags, turn the lights off, we won't be back any time soon
In darkness we take the way travelled by few
Slowly the rain falls and leaves the road ahead of us glistening
But far brighter is the hope of a new life for you

So follow me for one more mile
I'll sing for you and wear a smile
Tell you stories under starlight of the promised land
And as we walk I'll always hold your little hand
Don't look back and don't slow down
As we pass through every godforsaken town
We'll make it to a place where you can grow in peace
Away from blood that runs in broken city streets

I'll lie awake to watch over you keeping a steady eye
I'll go without when the rations are running low
I'll be prepared if there's danger out on the horizon
Believe me when I say that you'll be the last one to know
I'll carry you on my shoulders if your feet can take no more
When the night is too cold, I'll build us a fire
All that it takes is your face to bring courage and strength to me
When my will and my body are beginning to tire

So follow me for one more mile
I'll sing for you and wear a smile
Tell you stories under starlight of the promised land
And as we walk I'll always hold your little hand
Don't look back and don't slow down
As we pass through every godforsaken town
We'll make it to a place where you can grow in peace
Away from blood that runs in broken city streets
