"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 to the causeway
 Do they still LIVE 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 up 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
