you will

© words and music: garnett betts

You say you’ve knocked around this world
Here you’re back again
But the last two miles
You may never walk them
Cross the bridge to the river road
Anyone there you used to know
Where it meets Highfield

So, Zip down at the diner
Got you this parking lot job
You can stay in the trailer
Where the Legacy Hotel stood
And for some it’s there standing still
But it came down the year
You left Highfield

Chorus

You say you’re livin’ like an old hotel
Too many rooms
Too much truth to tell
But it can’t remember or recognize
That the Legacy will never rise again
But you will

Bridge

How did your long road become the long run
I still see you in that window booth
You were all coffee, math, and hockey
And politics
Always wondered how you’d choose

Chorus

You say you’re livin’ like that old hotel
Too many rooms
Too much truth to tell
But it can’t remember or recognize
That the Legacy will never rise again
But you will

You say you’ve knocked around this world
And you back again
But the last two miles
You may never walk them
Cross the bridge to the river road
Still looks the same
But no one you’d know
Where it meets Highfield

Chorus

You say you’re livin’ like that old hotel
Too many rooms
Too much truth to tell
But it can’t remember or recognize
That the Legacy will never rise again
But you will

I know you will
I can see that you will
I know you will
