new world

                        © words and music :   garnett betts

another day ahead surrounds you

above the gridlock in the hall

that line by line you’ve written through

to one more six AM living call

at the point of no resistance

to the land you always thought  you’d see

that lies so far beyond your universe

ten thousand coffee years away

chorus :

    where  you will be another language

    to speak better of the world

    where  you will find another ocean

    at your point of no return

    and in your passage  build devotion

    so you can bring love home again

    and find a new world

                                     find a new world

but who is left to tell you

let sleeping dreams lie when you’re awake?

what’s the point of insisting

you will one day sail away

chorus :

    where you will be another language

    to speak better of the world

    where  you will find another ocean

    at your point of no return

    in your passage  build devotion

    so you can bring love home again

    and find a new world

                              and find a new world

bridge :

yearning days are waiting

discover or escape

I see your map’s been crowded

Maybe all distance is one place

line by line you’re written through…

chorus :

    where you will be another language

    to speak better of the world

    where  you will find another ocean

    and at your point of no return

    and in your passage  build devotion

    so you can bring love home again

    and find a new world

                      and find a new world

                                        here – to live in
