AS FAR AS MY EYES CAN SEE

AS FAR AS MY EYES CAN SEE

I KNOW THAT I CAN GO THERE   

I KNOW I WILL BE FREE

I AM ON MY WAY

 

AWAKENED HOURS AND A RESTLESS SOUL

WATCH THE SEASONS PASS ME BY

A WANDERING FEELING RETURNS TO ME

THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR ME

STEADY AS A SHIP OUT AT SEA

 

DID WE TRY TOO HARD?

DID WE SPEAK TOO SOON?

WE JUST LET IT SLIP AWAY

WE SHOULD’VE REACHED FOR THE MOON!

 

I THINK OF LOVERS ALONG THE LOVER’S LANE

THROUGH THE STORM AND THE RAIN

CARRIED ME THROUGH THOSE YEARS

THOSE HARD AND THE HUNGRY YEARS

 

WE REFUSED TO LET OUR FAITH SUBSIDE

IN OUR STRUGGLE AND OUR FIGHTS

WE STUMBLE ON EVERY STONE UNTURNED

THEY WERE HARDENED BY THE YEARS

 

DID WE TRY TOO HARD?

DID WE SPEAK TOO SOON?

WE JUST LET IT SLIP AWAY

WE SHOULD’VE REACHED FOR THE MOON

                                     

YOU SPOKE TO ME WITH WORDS OF AFFECTION

WITH AN ANGEL’S SOUL-FILLED PERFECTION

I USE TO LOVE YOUR LONELY MELODY

SOUNDED HEAVENLY WHEN YOU SANG FOR ME

 

DID WE TRY TOO HARD?

DID WE SPEAK TOO SOON?

WE JUST LET IT SLIP AWAY

WE SHOULD’VE REACHED FOR THE MOON!

 

AS FAR AS MY EYES CAN SEE

I KNOW THAT I CAN GO THERE  

I KNOW I WILL BE FREE

I AM ON MY WAY
