I throw down my cup and cane

City of darkness and light

City of rainbows and bridges

City of magic and dreams

Maybe I will find you there

While I’m just out walking around

Step out of the mist

Like Aurora in a violet gown

Maybe we will meet at last

Daylight is breaking or in the afternoon

Asking only for eyes to see

As we are only here now as we have ever been

As we return to the time and place of origin again and again

And I finally lay down

I lay down my cup and cane

 

I reach for your hand through a dream

Past the corners and the edges of night

Just like I have always done

Before and since I was given breath and sight

I hope that I will find you there

Walking down some nameless road

Unlikely as it may sound

Beginning or the end of another episode

Maybe you will recognize my face

Clouds are sneaking past the sun and moon

And already know my name

As we are only here now as we have ever been

As we return to the time and place of origin again and again

And I finally reach through

I reach for your hand through a dream

 

 

I lay down my cup and cane

Just like you said that I would

Leave them where they lay

Walk away and say that we did

Maybe we will find out then

What we were always supposed to know

Before the doubt crept in

Stole what was obvious long ago

Maybe we will give up the ghost

Shrouds us from the light and jails our hearts in fear

Hides our eyes from the truth

As we are only here now as we have ever been

As we return to the time and place of origin again and again

And I finally lay down

I lay down my cup and cane
