"The Prize" as written by and Ryan Miller Adam Gardner....
My, my how things have changed
Since I have been away
It's the first time
But it's different, I'm afraid

Where's the boy
So happy to be near it all?
He's lost in the travel
Little part of me so small

Cry for me
Cry for him
Cry for the answer
Cry because it's done
Cry for the feeling
Cry for the youth
All for the prize

Through different eyes
The promise that you have made forgets
See it as you may
Deny it while you can
Search for the reason
As you to beg to understand


Come and go - don't get pulled into the light
Come and go - wouldn't believe it if you tried
Come and go - It's as useless as it
You can go the end, we know
You can go the end, we know
I won't tell you anything, so far away you are from me
(You can go the end, we know)
I won't tell you anything, so far away you are from me
(You can go the end, we know)
I won't tell you anything so far away
(You can go the end, we)


My, my, swear it's been a lifetime
Since I have been away
It's the last time
But, somehow, it's all the same
Where's the boy?

    General CommentIt's about being awed by realization of change.

    General CommentI'm trying to figure out what the prize is. And I can't tell if they say "Or for the prize" or "All for the prize". Is the prize reaching adulthood, then? If so, it's probably "all" like it says on these lyrics.

    Pardon the rambling. Don't mind me...
