John Close - music / peggy

long ago and far away

long ago and far away
the world was younger
and the dream could stay
drifting along from year to year without a thought oh

long ago I saw you there
but you were part of someone else's plans
Another world in which the dream got trapped but then

I had other roads to ride
such sadness deep inside
that all I did was
hide from no-one

long ago I may have thought
but there's no thought that means a lot today
the world's turned round
and the dream is so far away


on the road
today I saw the light
has changed from black to white
I wish we could go back forever

long ago and far away
I reached for you but all you did was fade
into a world I didn't know
so long, long ago.
