Words and Music by: Gordon Lightfoot
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to cry,
Never rest until you find, what is best to be forgot.
Let it float off in the night, Beneath the moon, so
brightly shining down, on the steeples of the town.
You must not be downhearted, over things you left undone.
You got faith, to tell you all is well, and you
know you’d best not stop, There’s still a ways to go.
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to sigh,
Let me show my way is best, on the wayward side tonight.
Let a planet be your guide, Above the fields,
beside the sleeping town, when the work is all shut down.
You will not be outsmarted, by that song you left unsung.
You got faith. to make your world take flight,..There is
still a ways to go, ’bout a thousand miles or so.
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to smile,
Let it happen on it’s own Like a shellfish in the sea,
I’m as selfish as can be, when it comes down to
me and alla my kin, All they want to do is win.
You will not be deserted, by old friends you left alone.
You got faith, to make you meet the cost, and you
know you’d best not wait, He who hesitates is lost.
So even if you’re sure,
It’s so easy to be, shellfish in the sea
