Step by step one at a time
The easiest route that you will find
Takes you not on paths you know
And never where you think you’ll go.
It takes you through the underbrush
The cold white waters sudden rush
Through lakes and streams and mountain paths
But never lets you see the past.
It takes you through the morning fog
And even through the soggy bog
And the forest dense with redwood trees
Where even the path cannot be seen.
Through caves a caverns all alike
Through alley ways in dead of night
But follow it and you will know
All the places that you could go.
