KERRY LIVGREN lyrics - A Hero's Canticle

KERRY LIVGREN
"A Hero's Canticle"

When the night comes rollin' down the sky
I see the questions in your eyes
We wonder what will come in times like these
But I don't believe the Crystal Ball
I'm listening for a different call
While all the world is clamoring for peace

(And) You can feel the weight the seasons bear
It's all around us everywhere
Tracing our movement through the years

For the Song we sang isn't heard anymore
We've forgotten it's name
But the melody still lingers in our hearts
So we're pushin' on and we're not looking back
And we don't mind the pain
'Cause a man can never lose what he can't attain

Can anyone remember when
The boys were boys and men were men
And everyone believed we'd all pull through
But the changes came and chilled the air
Our Heroes are no longer there
The ones who stand against the tide are few

(And) You can feel the weight the seasons bear
It's all around us everywhere
Tracing our movements through the years

For the Song we sang isn't heard anymore
We've forgotten it's name
But the melody still lingers in our hearts
So we're pushin' on and we're not looking back
And we don't mind the pain
'Cause a man can never lose what he can't attain

Now the years will steal our youth
A lie can change, but not the truth
It's slipping through our fingers even now
It's a sorrow we don't need to share
A burden we don't have to bear
The melody still lingers in my ears

'Cause the Song we sing, is alive again, And it's always the same
It's the melody that was living in our hearts
So we're pushin' on, and we're not looking back
And we don't mind the pain
'Cause a man can never lose what he can't attain
