Blue light rain, whoa, unbroken chain Looking for familiar faces in an empty window pane Listening for the secret, searching for the sound But I could only hear the preacher and the baying of his hounds Willow sky, whoa, I walk and wonder why They say love your brother but you will catch it when you try Roll you down the line boy, drop you for a loss Ride out on a cold railroad and nail you to a cross November and more as I wait for the score They're telling me forgiveness is the key to every door A slow winter day, a night like forever Sink like a stone, float like a feather Lilac rain, unbroken chain Song of the Saw-Whet owl Out on the mountain it'll drive you insane Listening to the winds howl Unbroken chain of sorrow and pearls Unbroken chain of sky and sea Unbroken chain of the western wind Unbroken chain of you and me
