Video by Scotland the Brave

You ask me to believe in magic
Expect me to commit suicide of the heart
And you ask me to play this game without question
Raising the stakes on this shotgun roulette

Every river I try to cross
Every hill I try to climb
Every ocean I try to swim
Every road I try to find

All the ways of my life
I’d rather be with you
There’s no way
Without you

But you came to me like the ways of children
Simple as breathing, easy as air
Now the years hold no fears, like the wind they pass over
Loved, forgiven, washed, saved

    Lovely song, I love the Scottish feel to it, I must have relatives from way back
    who are Scottish because I start longng for Scotland when I hear songs with a Scottish feel about them.
    It’s too bad that the great Scottish singer, Johnny Reid, isn’t allowed to be played in most parts of the world (copyrights issues), because he is a master of pulling on the heart with some of his tunes, and he adds bagpipes in many of his songs.

        How will you do that? I don’t think his music is available where you live, YouTube blocks it, if you want, I’ll send you a bunch of his sngs via email. I have ever one of his albums.

            I guess he’s only blocked in the USA and Estonia. Maybe others parts of the former Russia too.
