Lyrics
VERSE 1
Framed by a window - in a dream.
Nature's beauty - or my fantasy?
A voice I hears calls me.
The mountain & the stream & the valley so serence.

VERSE 2
The snow is falling - white on green.
The wind is howling - cold & mean.
But a voice I hear still calls me.
To the mountain & the stream & the valley so serence.

CHORUS
I want to reach out and grab hold.
Take it all into my soul.
Getting old, I can see.
These wings of gold all around me.

VERSE 3
We come & go like the wind & the snow.
And our time is not that long.
But we listen, we might hear.
The mountain & the stream & the valley as they sing.

BRIDGE
Spring's a coming around the bend.
And the stream will flow again.
All these things are inside of me.
Gives me hope - sets me free.

VERSE - Guitar solo

VERSE 3 repeated
CHORUS repeated

ENDING
I want to reach out and take hold of those wings of gold wrapped around me.
