Midlake – Bethel Woods Lyrics

I could get rid of it all
For the sake of the bethel woods
To a time and a place
Where peacefulness once stood

Gather the women and children
Leave our homes and our buildings
I’ve been ready for years now
Planted my seeds in the ground
With no more

I will get rid of it all
For the sake of the bethel woods
A love of another
Without strings as it should

Gather your courage and pillars
Leave what’s become familiar
I’ve been ready for years now
Planted my seeds in the ground

I’ll go ahead of thee
Meet me in time to be
Down the road

I did get rid of it all
For the sake of the bethel woods
Where neither moth nor the rust
Doth corrupt as it would

Let’s get out of town
Without a sound
The wanted found
No want abounds

I’ll go ahead of thee
Meet me in time to be
Weather the Winter’s cold
Every turn of seasons told
In the joys and in the woes

Follow along the path
When will it lead us back
Down the road

I’ll go ahead of thee
Meet me in time to be
Weather the Winter’s cold
Every turn of seasons told
In the joys and in the woes

Follow along the path
When will it lead us back
Down the road
