THE ONE WHO KNOWS
Dar Williams


Time it was I had a dream, and you're the dream come true. If I had the world to give, I'd give it all to you.

I'll take you to the mountains, I will take you to the sea. I'll show you how this life became a miracle to me.


You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day. So when they ask how far love goes,

When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.


All the things you treasure most will be the hardest won.

I will watch you struggle long before the answers come.

But I won't make it harder, I'll be there to cheer you on,

I'll shine the light that guides you down the road you're walking on.


You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day. So when they ask how far love goes,

When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.


Before the mountains call to you, before you leave this home,

I want to teach your heart to trust, as I will teach my own,

But sometimes I will ask the moon where it shined upon you last,

And shake my head and laugh and say it all went by too fast.


You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day. So when they ask how far love goes,

When my job's done you'll be the one who knows.
