St. John

from by Roger Hoover

lyrics

Sometimes you have to be alone.
Sometimes you have to roll the stone
back to the top of the hill again
and watch it roll back down again.

But you don’t have to walk on your knees
a hundred miles, a hundred miles
alone with what you see.
St. John of happiness,
St. John of the untamed storm,
its time to come home.

Sometimes you need to close your eyes.
Ride the wind and ride the blinds.
Sometimes you need to feel the quiet wain
from deep inside the hurricane.

But you don’t have to walk on your knees
a hundred miles, a hundred miles
alone with what you see.
St. John of happiness,
St. John of the untamed storm,
its time to come home.

Sometimes you have to go it all alone.
Sometimes you have to roll away the stone.

But you don’t have to walk on your knees
a hundred miles, a hundred miles
alone with what you see.
St. John of happiness,
St. John of the untamed storm,
its time to come home.
