the great divide lyrics – joe cocker

nights are long
and the wind is howling down
into the hollows
somewhere deep inside
i can hear you calling out
across the great divide

right or wrong there’s a feeling in my heart
i try to follow
but lately i just hide
and my dream of someday crawling out
to cross this great divide

heart like a drum
and the beating is wearing me down
standing at the station
but the train never comes
still i’m hanging on
like some old ghost town

miles to go but i see that one way out
stars in the distance
skies are open wide
waiting for my soul to rise
above this great divide

is a dangerous blade
in a reckless and trembling hand
sweet salvation
just a thin line away
i should cut and run
but i’ll make my stand

nights are long
but i’ll close my eyes again
until tomorrow
slip the bonds and ride
touch the face i long to see
above this great divide
we’ll be all we long to be
beyound this great divide
