 Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young 
 Cm7Ab
In a world of magnets and miracles 
 CmCm7Ab
 Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
 CmCm7Ab
 The ringing of the division bell had begun
 BbG7
Along the long road and on down the causeway
 AbBbG7
 Do they still meet there by the 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 tieus to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay
 AbCmGmAb
 The grass was greener  
 BbCmEbFm
 The light was brighter  
 AbCmGmAb
 When friends surrounded 
 BbCmEbFm
 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 sleeping 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
Theres 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...
