With smiles on the edge of our

I have re-lived those experiences
The footsteps of which
Have brought me where I am

We've held our hands in unity
and spoken of the thousand rail journeys
In which you and I
Kept awake in our arms

I have re-lived what was there
And which continues to remain so

The mountains we've passed
Give us a long call
Let us go now
Back to the place
Where we belong - no where

Let's keep going, the destination
will find itself
Its been a long time since it has...
