lyrics

Who Pays the Ferryman?
(Dowdeswell-Allaway)

Who pays the ferryman for you
On life’s great journey?
Who’ll cover the costs
That you’ll entail?

Who is responsible for you
Through life’s great upsets?
Who will comfort you
When you fail?

It’s easy to look outside for
The reasons and causes
For all those troubles
You endure.

When you learn that it’s not that way,
You’ll realise that you’ve already paid.

And you realise that life is for you,
Is there for you to make.
And you realise that it’s so simple,
It’s there for you to take
When you realise that life is worth it,
It’s there for you to take.
When you realise it can be so simple,
It’s there for you to make.

It happens that you think you’ve lost it,
All darkness around you,
And all that you hear is grey.

The stress and the torment of each
Everyday occurrence;
So normal that sometimes you could scream.

The tears they dry up but your
Blank eyes go on staring.
You’re holding your breath to stop the tears.

When you learn that it’s not that way
Because you realise that you’ve already paid.



Chorus

When you learn that it’s not that way
Because you realise that you’ve already paid.

And you realise that life is for you,
Is there for you to make.
And you realise that it’s so simple,
It’s there for you to take.

And that is life, the bitter and the sweetness,
The lightness and the shade.
And you realise you are the Ferryman,
You’ve already paid your way.

When you realise that life is worth it,
It’s there for you to take.
When you realise it can be so simple,
It’s there for you to make.
