Turning Away (MacLean Dougie)

Chorus: (and) In darkness we do what we can In daylight we're oblivion Our hearts so raw and clear Are turning away, turning away from here On the water we have walked Like the fearless child What was fastened we've unlocked Revealing wond'rous wild And in search of confirmation We have jumped into the fire And scrambled with our burning feet Through uncontrolled desire Chorus There's a well upon the hill From our ancient past Where an age is standing still Holding strong and fast And there's those that try to tame it And to carve it into stone Ah but words cannot extinguish it However hard they're thrown Chorus On Loch Etive they have worked With their highland dreams By Kilcrennan they have nourished In the mountain streams And in searching for acceptance They had given it away Only the children of their children Know the price they had to pay Chorus
