The Silent Echoes
As a child, I used to walk alone
From sunrise until the sun had set
I used to walk along the river side
Tracing its birth to the mountains high
I felt the pain of my weariness
And the rain did fail to change my road
Me and my shadow were best friends (back) then
I didn't know anyone who could help me win
My childhood walks keep coming back to me
A little vague, but its so clear to see
A lonely boy, I had no friends! I had no help!
To help me fight my fears back then.
I kept on going on roads I didn't know
I kept on going though I wished to go home
What was the secret I had tried to find?
It was the secret I have failed to find!
The river of joy, I used to call it once
I knew it well though I could not swim
Looking at the stars on the water clear
Holding the invisible hands of no one there
I saw the magic of the time and day
It was a magic that would never cease
The mountains still stand tall in my dreams
I looked at the hills for hours unceasing
Look at me now, I still am dreaming on
The boy I once was, is now long gone
Yet I know that I would love to run
Runnin along the rivers that I used to once
