11: Over the mountain and through the valley Towards an uncertain destination We walk in the invisible footprints Of the many gone before. Along the way I see faces I know Or thought I knew In the shadows of the trees. I hear voices I know Or thought I knew In the sound of the river. And all the while My heart beats a dirge For you. | Over the mountain and through the valley Towards an uncertain destination We walk in the invisible footprints Of the many gone before.
