East To West

Tony Kruska 1988 (New York)



All the world's a test as if you didn't know already
Life is more than all the things you need to keep it steady
It goes beyond the softest lips upon the smoothest cheeks
It goes beyond the warm horizon, chasing mountain peaks
If you listen closely to the words that flow from east to west
You may just find an answer that is one so truly blessed
