"Thirty Years" as written by Edwin Jobson, John Kenneth Wetton and William Scott Bruford....
Chasing rainbows for a lifetime
That left your girl like shadows from the sun
Run into traces of faces you thought you saw
But never seemed to mean much more

Than echoes of a day gone by
When someone else would have to try
To light the stars
...In your sky

All the things you planned
Just sand castles washed away
On tidal waves of tears
The fears overpowering

Your complex dreams just slither down
drowning in rocky pools,
Or smashed and dashed
On peril's course, divorcing prematurely
thoughts
Of lasting love
...In your life.

Sometime when you've time to spare
Dreaming of missed opportunities
Spare a tear and douse your bridge...
(Burning)
Thirty years and on the ledge....
(Learning)

All the things you planned
(Fading)
Thirty years in bed
(Waiting)
All the things you planned
(Fading)
Thirty years in bed
(Fading)

Chasing rainbows for a lifetime
That left your girl like shadows from the sun
Run into traces of faces you thought you saw
But never seemed to mean much more

Than echoes of a day gone by
When someone else would have to try
To light the stars in the your sky
Your dark sky
