about

"All That We've Built" written and recorded by Ryland Bouchard in 2010.

lyrics

out in the open
out in the plains
out in the prairies
where the working men say:
oh do I try, oh do I pray
but every single day I carry new weight

up in the mountains
up in the trees
up in branches
where the birds do sing:
oh do I try, oh do I pray
but the nests that we build the wind takes away

out in the water
out in the sea
out in waves
where you live by your needs:
oh do I try, oh do I pray
but all of these currents they pull as they change

out in the night
out in the dark
out in the place
where you are who you are
oh do I try, oh do I pray
but as soon as we wake life takes us away

up in the mountains
out on the sea
climbing to the top of an old fir tree
oh do I know, oh do I say
all that we've built will soon pass away
