                                    CLOSER TO NOWHERE

 

                                                                      There was a time when everything

                                                                      was simple

                                                                      A disregarded moment seemed to

                                                                      last for ever more

                                                                      And do you know the purpose

                                                                      of it all?

                                                                      Are we racing towards the future?

                                                                      Am I staring at the past?

 

                                                                      Are you my friend?

                                                                      At this point it ends

                                                                      The time is slowly ticking

                                                                      In the recess of my weary mind

                                                                      Where have I been?

                                                                      When should I give in?

                                                                      To all these many questions

                                                                      Iíll keep searching for my path

                                                                      to home

                                                                     

                                                                     (chorus)

                                                                     If you go Iíll be right here

                                                                     Youíre a thousand miles away

                                                                     And yet youíre standing here

                                                                     beside me

                                                                     If you go Iíll be right here

                                                                     Youíre a thousand miles away

                                                                     And yet youíre closer to nowhere

 

                                                                    And tell me again

                                                                    Which way to begin

                                                                    My memories are all drifting

                                                                    As the tide runs to the empty shore

 

                                                                   Time it transcends

                                                                   This space never ends

                                                                   Our lives are slowly falling

                                                                   Like a leaf thatís floating from

                                                                   a limb

 

                                                                  (chorus)

 

                                                                  Your dream isnít dead

                                                                  New children are bred

                                                                  The cycle keeps us reaching out

                                                                  To unknown futures

 

                                                                  (chorus)
