Coyote Moon

1992 Words and Music by Randy Stonehill and Terry Scott Taylor
Recorded by Mercy River for their album "Coyote Moon" (1992)
And the seasons go round and round
And the seasons go round and round

Here we begin, hearts on the wind, laughing carefree children
Then one day, they run away, cos nothing stays the same
We're lost and we're found, we're free and we're bound
A stranger in the mirror
Filled with a longing we can never name

(Chorus):
Sometimes you'll dance with the wild wind at your heels
Sometimes you'll hang your head at the lonely way life feels
Sometimes you'll laugh as the sunlight fills your room
Sometimes you'll cry at the coyote moon

And the seasons go round and round
And the seasons go round and round

Bitter and sweet, the road at our feet beckons us to follow
We open our eyes and realize that time is not our own
Joy and then pain, the sun and the rain
The mystery and the Maker
Whisper again we're only halfway home

(Repeat chorus)

And the seasons go round and round...(4x)
