lyrics

BOOKEND

This is where the book ends
This is the final word
On all the things that I have seen and heard

Do you recall the opening pages
Before those youthful hopes and dreams all fled
The manuscript was stained where desperate fingers bled

Now it makes my heart glad
To be able to walk away from it all
I’ve had my pride and now I’ll take my fall

This is where the river flows into a shoreless sea
To meet an endless skyway to be free

This is when the clock stops
That used to tick so fast
Through all those times we knew could never last

I’ve squandered all good company
It’s time now to seek it out
And discover what living’s all about

This is where the cock crows
To herald a new dawn
Amidst this golden field of ripening corn

This is where the river flows into a shoreless sea
To meet an endless skyway to be free

This is where the book ends
Its tale is said and done
New ones are awaiting the road goes on

They say everyone has at least one book in them
If this is mine then let it stand
With its flaws and holes delivered by my hand

This is where the song ends
Maybe others will be sung
With free reign for emotions deep to run

This is where the river flows into a shoreless sea
To meet an endless skyway to be free

(Gary Miller)
