Yonder mountain so high
I can’t make it all on my own, no
Rolling river why so wide?
To sweep me up and to bear me on
Up against the sky so bright
That I can’t even close my eyes

I know I will follow (follow love)
Yes, yes, I will follow (follow love)
I will follow (follow love)
Follow love

Growing slowly like a tree
Someday soon, darling I love you
I love you
Soft and gentle, full summer moon
Set my soul free
Thank you, baby
Drifting like a cloud in the sky
I can see myself from high above

I know I must follow (follow love)
Somehow I will follow (follow love)
I must follow (follow love)
Follow love

Oh, half the future and half the past
They’re waiting inside your eyes
Yes, and after all of this
To last and last
Till at last it’s your time to rise, rise

True believer that I am
I am blind, lead me on (lead me on)
Blessed receiver of your love
I own my own time
And I’ve been holding on (holding on)
Leave the word unspoken
And the spell will not be broken

And I’m bound to follow, now (follow love)
I know I must go (follow love)
I must follow (follow love)
Yes, I must follow (follow love)
Someone to hold my hand (follow love)
Somebody to lead me on(follow love)
Somebody to walk beside me (follow love)
Someone to follow me now (follow love)
I must follow love (follow love)
I will fall in love
I will follow love (follow love)
Anywhere it leads me
I will follow love (follow love)
Follow love
