High Hopes

Beyond the horizon of the place
we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles

Our thoughts strayed constantly
and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and
on down the Causeway
Do they still meet
there by the Cut

There was a ragged band
that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away

Leaving the myriad small creatures
trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of
bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green
it was on the other side

Steps taken forwards
but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force
of some inner tide

At a higher altitude
with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights
of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever
by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied

Our weary eyes still stray
to the horizon
Though down this road
we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

... se cerne graul de neghina, se cerne si se cerne si e tot mai deasa sita... asta simt! Doamne, ce ne mai asteapta oare? Si totusi, in bratele Tale simt binecuvantare in orice moment de incercare! Doamne, ai ramas singurul dor al meu! Multumesc!!!
