Bruce Hornsby & James Mercer – My Resolve Lyrics

My Resolve By Bruce Hornsby & James Mercer

Ash plumes rise
In electrified skies
Incandescent light
With flash bolt eyes
And no one knows why
I’ve been drawn to this life
I’m downwind and high
On a survival line

In my resolve I move the rock
Or maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In its face I cower
I try to stand above the fray
Stand apart, not buying
And I move on up, up the hill
To maybe fully flower
I flower

Reach for the heights
Then thrown to the depths
I look for someone wise
With a soft caress
Will I find myself alone
Repeating numbing tasks
You could help roll it up
‘Cause I’ve got no back-up plan

Oh with my resolve I move the rock
Or maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In its face I cower
I try to stand above the fray
Stand apart, not buying
And I move on up, up on the hill
To maybe fully flower
I flower

Move on up then I roll back down
Crampons broke, no one hears my sound
Upward, downward for so long
With my resolve I climb and climb, and I fall

In my resolve I move the rock
Or maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In its face I cower
I try to stand above the fray
Stand apart, not buying
And I move on up, up the hill
To maybe fully flower
I flower
