The Endless River ( closed adoption )

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of ignorance and secrets.
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The longing to return to our people had begun.

We would close our eyes at night and try to remember their faces
Before the passage of time took our memories away
Are they thinking about us too as we look out our windows
From that better life consumed by slow decay

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 destroying it all again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

Encumbered forever by desire of acceptance
There's a sadness still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to that 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
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever
