I keep on running but I can’t get to the mountain
Behind me lie the years that I misspent
And I’ve been sitting like a flower in the fountain
When all the love I’m gonna need is heaven sent

Gonna try my best to get there
But I can’t afford the bus fare
And the storm that’s rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry

and I was told
that the streets were paved with gold
And there’d be no time for getting old when we were young
It’s alright, if you dance with me tonight
We’ll fight the dying of the light and we’ll catch the sun

Woke up sleeping on a train that was bound for nowhere
The echoes that I could hear were all my own
The world had turned and I’d become a stranger
Got tired of watching all the flowers turn to stone

Gonna try my best to get there
But I can’t afford the bus fare
And the storm that’s rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry

and the cold against my shoulder
When it comes on the winter
it seems to last forever
And it makes me wanna, makes me wanna cry…

…I was told
The streets were paved with gold
And there’d be no time for gettin’ old when we were young
It’s alright, if you dance with me tonight
We’ll fight the dying of the light and we’ll catch the sun


Gonna try my best to get there
But I can’t afford the bus fare
And the storm that’s rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry…

…I was told
The streets were paved with gold
And there’s be no time for getin’ old when we were young
It’s alright, if you dance with me tonight
We’ll fight the dying of the light and we’ll catch the sun

And the cold against my shoulder
When it comes on the winter
Man, it makes me wanna cry
And the cold against my shoulder
And seems to last forever
And it makes me wanna cry
