Lyrics

The Final Journey. James Fraser 2013

When the time comes for the final journey

We know this is the one that we make alone.

We each have different dreams of our destination

The only certainty is the great unknown.

As we realise that on this passage

We cannot take the things which we have saved

We must leave behind everything but memories

To only keep those thoughts which have been engraved.

The great wheel of time draws it?s leisurely arc

And spins us through days and thru months and thru years,

The span of our lives is, they say, just a spark

That flickers and burns when the darkness appears.

Now if we reflect on the paths that brought us

Have we earned enough to pay the fare?

Have we made a contribution to our loved ones

To gain enough respect so we can prepare?

The great wheel of time draws it?s leisurely arc

And spins us through days and thru months and thru years,

The span of our lives is, they say, just a spark

That flickers and burns when the darkness appears.

---------- break --------

When the time comes for the final journey

We know this is the one that we make alone.

We each have different dreams of our destination

The only certainty is the great unknown.

The great wheel of time draws it?s leisurely arc

And spins us through days and thru months and thru years,

The span of our lives is, they say, just a spark

That flickers and burns when the darkness appears.
