To Make Man Cry

We wandered through the streets of gold
You and I
We shuffled through the fields of gold
In days gone by
We listened to the tales of old
With tear in eye
We wondered if we'd be as bold
To make men cry

We hurried through our darkest days
You and I
We dallied in the summer haze
In days gone by
We saw the things that changed man's ways
With tear in eye
We hoped that we could be so brave
To make men cry

We talked about the things we shared
You and I
We dreamed together as we cared
In days gone by
We lived each day as we dared
With tear in eye
We craved the questions that would dare
To make men cry

We danced in limbo when we met
You and I
We played our tunes without regret
In days gone by
We laughed with joy on days well spent
With tear in eye
We sought the words that could be set
To make men cry

And as each moment passes by
We never think of what has been
But only of life passing by
And what was shared but never seen
The words that came and passed us by
That fell to earth in a dream
Songs that screamed and made man cry
