God's Country (Borderlands - Part 1)

 

Lyrics

Where a new life can be waiting

For those with courage not to blow

The few chances that life sends us

To face the future’s great unknown


Where the shores of the saints are peaceful

Where the fresh North Sea air blows

Where the sands of time shift slowly

And the ancient castles groan


Where double rainbows stretch unbroken

Where God paints in colours bold

Where roads to endless beauty

While winter nights chill to the bone


This is God’s Country

North of the Undiscovered County

But I never felt so much like I was in Hell

I never felt so alone


Where the tall oak trees stand proudly

Where succulent blackberries grow

Where the gardens always are well-tended

And the whole land is one great show


Where the cattle and the ponies graze

Where a little boy throws stones

And laughs to see them plop and settle

Into the river of the swans


This is God’s Country

North of the Undiscovered County

But I never felt so much like I was in Hell

I never felt so alone


There’s a house on the borderlands

Where the heart and home

Lie fractured and bleeding

Into wet crumbling stone


That’s where my heart was broken

That’s where my dreams were blown away

That’s where I now feel dead and empty

That’s why I can no longer stay


In God’s Country

North of the Undiscovered County

For I never felt so much like I was in Hell

I never felt so alone


No, I never felt so much like I was in Hell
