Beyond that road lies a shining world
Beyond that road lies despair
Beyond that road lies a world that's gleaming
People who are scheming...
Beauty, hunger, glory, sorrow, never a pain or care
But I'm liable to find a couple of surprises there...
There's a song I must sing, it's a well known song,
But the tune is bitter
And it doesn't take long to learn, I can learn!
That pretty little world that beams so bright
That pretty little world that seems delightful can burn
Let me learn... let me learn...
For I can see it, shining somewhere
Bright lights somewhere invite me to come there and learn
And I'm ready, I can hear them, sirens singing
Inside my ear, I hear them all singing come learn!
Who knows maybe all the visions that I see
May be waiting just for me to say
Take me there and make me see it, make me feel it
I know it's so, I know that it really may be...
Let me learn!
