Uncharted Hearts
Words and music by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer



As the sun rises it soon compromises the safety of night

And two travelers in spite of themselves

Have to push on



Mornings remind them of things left behind them

One a good wife and the other a life with no name

So they push on



Over the hills and the plains they ride

Sharing the unwritten law they abide

Two uncharted hearts in the silence of their own flight



The journey they measure in danger and pleasure

One likes to bluff and the other is tough on the girls

Still they push on



Roll the bones

Devil-may-care

No questions asked

Barely friends

Two solitaires

Needing each other out there



They build a good fire before they retire

Searching the flame for a moment of blameless repose

A way to push on

Lessons come hard on this brave terrain

They may run free but they're still in the rain

Two uncharted hearts in the silence of their own flight
