you jump on your white horse
you ride over fields of grain and wind
if you follow the right course
it's gonna take you back again

future is rosy blushing
the past is pale
your heart is a boat
set sail

you say you need that holy tin cup
so you ride on right on
with your head high up
your thoughts turn
but your eyes only see them
amazed at your return

when they'll all say they love you they love you it's true
'cause you come from the land of forever night and you rode on through
and you packed your empty satchels full of their dreams
do they love who you are or what you do
you may never know

and you're on your own now
long past the front door
you stare in wonder at the sky
what is it you are looking for
your magic potions
your precious jewels
are only notions
you feel a fool
do you want riches
do you want fame
do you need millions to know you
so you don't forget your own name

'cause they'll all say they love you they love you it's true
'cause you come from the land of forever night and you rode on through
and you packed your empty satchels full of their dreams
do they love who you are or what you do
you may never know
you may never know
you may never know
you may never know

because they'll all say they love you
