Land of Snows

 

Venerable, can you tell me what it is that youíve done

why would you want to come back to this world weíre on?

 

Thereís nothing like seeing old friends in their brand new faces,

sometimes thatís the way life is supposed to be

Thereís nothing like hearing familiar blessings in their brand new voices,

sometimes thatís the way life is supposed to go

So, until we solve these mysteries be with me in my land of snows

 

Venerable, can you tell me why I can never wear the maroon robe

why is it that I can never be an ďOcean of WisdomĒ

 

Why would you want to be ordained when you could live your life as a saint,

sometimes thatís the way life is supposed to be

Why would you want to lead yourself to water when you could stay behind and quench the thirst of others,

sometimes thatís the way life is suppose to go

So, until we solve these mysteries think of me in my land of snows.

 

Venerable, can you tell me how you can speak in your native tongue

and yet not have any homeland to speak of?

 

There is a home for me in Dharmsala and my heart is there with the Dalai Lama

sometimes thatís the way life is supposed to be,

You can pray for me while in Lhasa that next year we will meet at the Potala

and sometimes thatís the way life is supposed to go

So, until we solve these mysteries be with me in my land of snows.
