From The Other Side



I've eyed from the higher tide
how I've gaffed
and how I've lied
how I've toiled
and how I've tried
I've eyed the great divide

I've eyed from the party ride
how I've calved
and how I've vied
how I've pushed
and how I've pried
I've eyed the great divide

I've eyed from the inner guide
how I've chaffed
and how I've strived
how I've saved
and how I've thrived
I've eyed the great divide

I've eyed from the other side
how I've laughed
and how I've cried
how I've lived
and how I've died
I've eyed the great divide
