Don't Fall Too Far
©2013 Eric Butterfield (BMI)

Look to the sky and remember me
You can go it alone but will that make you free?
When the heavens come calling where will you be?
Don't fall too far from the family tree
No, don't fall too far from the family tree

Silence is golden, a voice in the breeze
No it can't hold you but rocks you to sleep
You can't take no pride in crying alone
The tears they don't roll, they just gather like stones

Listen to the heavens
Where will you be?
Don't turn your back on your own family
The tears don't roll away
They just gather like stones

Your stone awaits etching, are you done with your deeds?
Did you comfort the children, did you help those in need?
Your stone is awaiting a saying you chose
Now, don't take the chisel to your own stone
No, don't take the chisel to your own stone

Look to the heavens
What do you see?
Don't fall so far you can't set yourself free
The tears don't roll away
They just gather like stones

Silence is golden
You're a voice in the breeze
Nothing can hold you
No, you'll never sleep
Don't let it take you
Don't let it take you too far
Don't let it take you
Don't let it take you too far

Now shout to the heavens, you'll never take me
My work is undone now just let me be
A storm is awaiting, I won't ride it alone
No I won't take the chisel to my own stone
No I won't take the chisel to my own stone
