When I was a boy, all the books I read
I followed like a blind man, heed the words my father said
Those golden summers faded into night, words become a dream
The echoes of my childhood and where the path is winding

May God bless you, keep you safe from all harm
I stand by you always
Time and motion, hands touch
Lips find a way to heaven on high

Watch the children play, the child becomes a man
And all the tangled webs we weave, you swear it as you live and breathe
We stay together, death until you part, winner takes the prize
The future's at your fingertips, right before your eyes

No more sorrows
(Smoke and mirrors)
No more nights with no end
(I really learned a lot)
I see my tomorrows
(Smoke and mirrors)

And nothing from nothing
And ashes to ashes they say
All the more that you reach out
The more that it runs away

(Smoke and mirrors)
(Smoke and mirrors)
No more goodbyes
(That's all I ever got, smoke and mirrors)
No lies, you find your way there
(Show me what she's got)
Heaven on high, high
(Smoke and mirrors)

May God bless you, keep you safe from all harm
I stand by you always

Time and motion
(Smoke and mirrors)
Hands touch, lips find a way to
(That's all I ever got)
Heaven on high
(Smoke and mirrors)

No more sorrows
(I really learned a lot, smoke and mirrors)
No more nights with no end
(Show me what she's got)
I rise or I fall
(Smoke and mirrors)

No more goodbyes
(She really makes me hot, smoke and mirrors)
No lies, you find a way there
(She really makes me hot)
Heaven on high
(Smoke and mirrors)
