[Cm]Beyond the hor[Cm7]izon of the pl[Ab]ace we lived when we were young[Cm]
In a world of m[Cm7]agnets and miracles[Ab]
[Cm]Our thoughts strayed con[Cm7]stantly and withou[Ab]t boundary
[Cm]The ringing of the di[Cm7]vision bell had begu[Ab]n
Along the long [Bb]road and on do[G7]wn the causeway
[Ab]Do they still m[Bb]eet there by t[G7]he cut
(same chord sequence for other verses)
There was a ragged band who followed in our footsteps
Running before times took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay
[Ab]The grass was gr[Cm]eener[Gm] [Ab]
[Bb]The light was brigh[Cm]ter[Eb] [Fm]
[Ab]With friends sur[Cm]round[Gm]ed[Ab]
[Bb]The nights of won[Cm]der[Eb] [Fm]
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
Marching drums bit
(Nylon Strung guitar)

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road I've been so many times
(same sequence as in first chorus )
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...
