Lyrics

Eastern Gate <br />
by Marsha Stevens copyright1992 <br />
<br />
Boundaries of time and space, boundaries of fears, <br />
Boundaries of promises kept for all these years, <br />
Boundaries that keep me from the ones I long to know, <br />
But there is a boundless place where you and I will go. <br />
<br />
Save a thousand years in heaven for me, I will meet you there. <br />
Time for ev'ry gentle whisper, ev'ry answered prayer. <br />
Maybe time was just too short or my needs were just too great, <br />
But I'll meet you just beyond the eastern gate. <br />
<br />
Each of us on diff'rent roads, seeking what is right. <br />
Not all things are possible in this lonely night, <br />
But the land of promises is coming into view, <br />
Land of love and timelessness that I can spend with you. <br />
<br />
Save a thousand years in heaven for me, I will meet you there, <br />
Time to mend each broken promise, time to really care. <br />
Maybe life was just too short or I was just too late, <br />
But I'll meet you just beyond the eastern gate. <br />
<br />
Save a thousand years in heaven for me, I will meet you there, <br />
Time for every love requited, every answered prayer, <br />
Maybe time was just too short or my needs were just too great, <br />
But I'll meet you just beyond the eastern gate. <br />
Maybe life was just too short, but I will not be late, <br />
I'll meet you just beyond the eastern gate. <br />
