There is a canyon, deep and wide
You see her standing, on the other side
Men have fallen, men have died
Hoping to cross the Great Divide

Her lips are moving, you hear her call
Her words are soothing, is it worth the fall
She says she loves you, maybe she lied
She stands across the Great Divide

Travel on, she is a great pretender
Still you want her, and her lips are warm and tender
You can't decide, is it cowardice or pride
And does she know the power of surrender

In those romances, she loves to read
The girl who dances, never takes the lead
Her smile invites you, come to my side
She tells you love will be your guide
Across the Great Divide
