lyrics

Trees grow tall
Leaves fall
Flowers wither and die
The music stops
The curtains drop
The river rolls on by

The monarchs go
To Mexico
How do they know the way
Each question leads
To more mysteries
At the end of the day

Thunder booms
Clouds hide the moon
No sign of heaven’s blue dome
It’s just as dark
And raining just as hard
When I wake up far from home

A lonesome serenade
Whining down the grade
Reminds me I can never stay
Another trial, another test
Miles before I rest
At the end of the day

I’ve left a wake of broken hearts
I don’t even know where to start
I’m lost in the forest of regrets
Following the crumbs
Trying to undo all I’ve done
Somehow I can’t retrace my steps

Naked as a bone
Don’t leave me here all alone
With this hollow heart of clay
Ain’t everyone devout
When the sand is running out
At the end of the day

Campfire towns
Smouldering on the ground
With their embers all aglow
You’re somewhere down there I guess
The moonlight on your breast
Blue as the newfallen snow

I do what I do
You do too
That’s just the price that we pay
Stronger for our scars
And wiser by far
At the end of the day
