The stars are out tonight, the breeze is warm and light As I'm walking right back to you Along the dreaming road, the only way to go When I'm travelling by our code that north is true Once upon a time these same bright stars did shine Down the center line leading here Nearly thirty years ago, now the map is stained and old But on the dreaming road the coast is clear I loved you more than life and I guess that's why I died When you would not love me back I couldn't survive And so the girl I was turned into someone else Keeping to myself and from the light I wasn't odd or strange, just quietly rearranged Sometimes the biggest change stays out of sight So without plot or clue I ran away from you I was twenty-two and drunk in Amsterdam Got robbed in Paris, France, got home on one last chance And without a backward glance I began again And the days just kept on rolling and I just kept on going Without a thought of ever slowing down I made this long road mine but it was not the dreaming kind Too many lost souls trying to get found But beneath this ancient sky, one night we did collide And the hole I thought was scaled opened wide I tried so hard again not to fall back in But you had me then by the throat And a strange futility came washing over me Almost peacefully I felt the rope A million miles goes by in the blink of an eye And so I cannot try to slow time down And years are made of sand slipping through my hands Even faster than the speed of sound The stars are out tonight, the breeze is soft and light As I'm walking right back to you With nothing left to hide, the tears have all been cried And the girl who died is walking too Down the dreaming road, where the light is always gold The air is never cold and always fine And north is always true and you are always you And I'm that girl you knew once upon a time
