DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?

Are you daunted
By the day?
Does the sight
of light grown bright
Turn steel into clay?
Your disarray
It glitters in the sun
Best the best go headfirst
Best the worst be overrun

CHORUS:
Do you want to live forever?
Do the strongest long
Singing someone's
sad, sad song?
You dream
And flowers flood the sky
You drive the nail,
you strive and flail
And nightbirds cry

Is there something
In the air?
Something more than called for
Something trenchant and fair?
Some other where
Where wonders never cloy?
Where the sun comes undone
Where the moon
will soon deploy?

CHORUS:
Do you want to live forever?
Is forever long?
Is forever ever wrong?
I'll plunge
Although I'll know not why
I strike a spark, I spike the dark
And nightbirds cry

BRIDGE:
And nightwinds sigh
Cattle low
And stars beguile our gaze
High beyond the sky
Old dreams go
And while away our days

Is there wonder
All about?
Every clasp and asp, and every
Whisper and shout?
And every doubt?
For doubt is all we own
At the foot of the mountain put
Your shoulder to the stone

CHORUS:
Do you want to live forever?
Is the chasm deep?
Is the mountain so, so steep?
I'll leap
Uncertain where I'll lie
The stars are far,
and here we are
And nightbirds cry
