Hello, my friend, please step inside
This world I've found and lived in
For nigh on 40 years now
The highs, the lows, the glories, the sins
I spend a lot of time
Avoiding being me
Yeah, I spend a lot of time forgetting all the things that I've seen.
Come, walk with me for a while
As I show you the towers and the halls
Where voice in song has pierced and echoed
Through the years of time, those roaring falls
See the fresh gardens, bursting with colour
The flowers, the trees, the fields, the mountains
And breathe in the crisp air, fire in your lungs
And come upon the waterfall, the living fountains
Let us run, let us hide, let us seek, let us find
The True Soul, the Heartland, the Peak.
With blue sky, and new rain
Through soul-land, through heart pain
Towards the echoes of time, that walks on ahead
And drags us behind, the future looks chilling
But we've been offered a partnership by the Ancient of Days
We can accept or decline, a new life so thrilling....
I've spent....an awful lot of time... avoiding being me
