​Stepping Stones

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Riof (1997) and on the album With Strings (2003).

And so much time has gone
Since we worked out in these open fields
With the hopes of generations pulled around us
And a strength revealed

And so much has been done
Since we ran around the Snaigow wood
And never knowing where our gentle lights might lead us
Or if indeed they could

And we do not stand alone
I know we stand with all the others
Out in the deep unknown
I know we stand upon their stepping stones

Sure and simple souls guarded round us
As we worldly grew
With nothing greater than what working days might show them
They gave us all they knew

And though their dreams were small
Their true and rural hearts were strong
And with an honest smile that burns from somewhere distant
They helped us all along

And we do not stand alone
I know we stand with all the others
Out in the deep unknown
I know we stand upon their stepping stones

And in these silent hours
When reflection lays our journey down
And we think on all departed conversations
It's such an earthly sound

And we do not stand alone
I know we stand with all the others
Out in the deep unknown
I know we stand upon their stepping stones
