10,000 Maniacs Lyrics

Smallest Step Lyrics

When the day ends and church bells are ringing
When the valley is shrouded in snow
When you're feeling that hope somewhere vanished
And there's no poetry left to console you

With the smallest step you'll find a way, oh of fate borne
And life is a jewel but stone will tarnish as dust will descend
Take a minute and wipe free the luster it'll mirror a day without end
With the smallest step you'll feel it starts a journey your way

Oh, they tried to tell me but I'll learn for myself
And when they tried to tell me you know the words disappeared
On the wind I was running away
And when the laughter echoes through you in a pale beaming ray
And you'll know always and ever within you anyway

With the smallest step you'll feel it
With the smallest step you'll hear it
With the smallest step you'll find a way
