BUILT TO LAST

by the Grateful Dead

There are times when you can beckon

There are times when you must call

You can take a lot of reckoning

But you can't take it all

There are times when I can help you out

And times that you must fall

There are times that you must live in doubt

And I can't help at all

Three blue stars rise on the hill

Say no more, now just be still

All these trials soon be past

Look for something built to last

A wind held by the collar

Got a cloud held by the breeze

You can walk on coals of fire

But sometimes you must freeze

There are times when you offend me

And I do the same to you

If we can't or won't forget it,

I guess we could be through

One blue star sets on the hill

Call it back you never will

One more star sinks in the past

Show me something built to last.

Built to last till time itself

Falls tumbling from the wall

Built to last till sunshine fails

And darkness moves on all

Built to last while years roll past

Like cloudscapes in the sky

Show me something built to last

Or something built to try

There are times when you get hit upon

Try hard but you cannot give

Other times you'd gladly part

With what you need to live

Don't waste your breath the save your face

When you have done your best

And even more is asked of you

Fate will decide the rest.

All the stars are gone but one

Morning breaks here comes the sun

Cross the sky now sinking fast

Show me something built to last

Three blue stars rise on the hill

Say no more, now just be still

All these trials soon be past

Look for something built to last

One blue star sets on the hill

Call it back you never will

One more star sinks in the past

Show me something built to last

All the stars are gone but one

Morning breaks here comes the sun

Cross the sky now sinking fast

Show me something built to last
