2013

The chase was hard (to the water)
The chase was long (to the sunlight)
Through the searing heat of the midday sun
I’m out of breath, I am gasping out
I’m almost gone, I am almost gone
My heart it is beating, my heart it is pounding
Looking back, there’s something there
Against the rocks, burning clear
I see his shape with the horns and spear
It’s a very long way, far, far away
From your hometown streets and all those rusting mills
And they never could understand 
Why you had to go, why you had to go

So did you make it safe to the promised place?
And did they take you in like you were part of them?
You wanted it so much – all those days of dreaming
You gave it all your faith, you gave it all your faith
And I remember the night we passed each other
You were like the last on Earth, still praying, still praying 
My heart it was pounding, my heart it was beating
With him standing there with the horns and spear
It’s a very long way, far, far away
From your hometown streets and all those rusting mills
And they never could understand 
Why you had to go, why you had to go
