Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: On And On It Goes
Lyrics for Album: The Calling [1996]



River starts with a drop of rain

Somewhere in this world

Light years shape this arc of sky

And sand a precious pearl

And yuou will light a stranger's life

By letting yours unfurl

And on and on it goes

Sparks upon the wind

Like a July 4th, a crown of stars

And a good time grin

On and on it flies, on a new bird's wing

In a beating heart, the moon that rose

And the gif of spring



You can say that you'll never matter

Lose or win

The world won't care and it's hard to bear

Such a lonely wind

But you can change a stranger's life

By letting yours begin

And on and on it goes

Chance is everywhere

Like the train you took

The rain that fell on the summer air



On and on it flies, like the time we've lost

It's either running out

Or covering all our dreams in trust



Every night the TV shows

One more bad day's news

A world away from what I know

And what I do

But I could save a stranger's life

If I had a clue

And on and on it goes

Attention must be paid

Before it seems we're one soul short

And a second late

On and on it flies across the stratosphere

At the speed of love, if you stop

And feel it you will hear

On and on it goes

Sparks upon the wind

Like a July 4th, a crown of stars

And a good time grin

And on and on it flies, on a new bird's wing

In a beating heart, the moon that rose

And the gift of spring
