Bells
High on a hill
History chimes
And you want a new beginning
Tell me
In biro or quill
Your purpose and mine
Prove that our world is spinning
So
Here goes
Nothing better
And
Here's to
Something else


Until tomorrow
But that's another time
It's just another time
It's just some other troubled time


The seed
Grew up a boy
Turned to a man
Is this the world you wanted?
It seems
Under the soil
Over the sand
Not quite the seed I planted
I've seen you
And now
I know better
I've been you
Now i'm
Someone else


Until tomorrow
But that's another time
It's just another time
It's just some other troubled time


Until
Tomorrow
Until...

    For me it speaks to another self - a person he used to be, as when he asks himself, "is this the world you wanted? " and "i've been you, now i'm someone else. It's as if he's looking at an older photo of himself, or in the mirror. He sees his current self as not quite the seed he planted - how life doesn't always turn out the way we wish.
