In a land of endless summer
I had never felt so cold
I was soaked on April showers
in a wink I’m growing old

Shiny blue eyes
closing slowly
swiftly with a ray of light
I was moving in the shadows
watching as the years go by

Hear my voice
shed this heart
these old hands
these old hands

Calling out across the water
to the land of deeper thoughts
there were times of doubt and sorrow
that we spent in blissful joy

Hear my voice
shed this heart
I was lost
now I’m found

Take these woes
and these sighs
as I walk
in this sequence of shadows
this valley of light
some of them thought I would never survive you
some of them thought I would never survive
some of them thought I would never survive you
