Lyrics
You free your mind, let it drift to places you recall
It?ll take you places you don?t wanna be at all
Starts the flood of names and faces that I used to know
But tried to put away and leave behind me long ago

If you choose to trust the hands of fate
You may wind up carrying the weight

A crease of gold in satin skies, a perfect afternoon
Then slowly fades and lets the starlight shepherd in the moon
I close my eyes and slip away into the arms of sleep
Not sure what I?m letting go and what I?ll choose to keep

If you choose to trust the hands of fate
You may wind up carrying the weight

Remember when I?d shrug it off, take it all in stride
You eat enough of pain you?re gonna pack it all inside

Come the dawn I?m welcomed by the promise of the day
But promises not kept just make you hide it all away
There?s times the best relief is when the day comes to an end
Put it down and never have to deal with it again

If you choose to trust the hands of fate
You may wind up carrying the weight
