Seals & Crofts – We May Never Pass This Way Again lyrics

(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals & Dash Crofts, 1973)
From the albums diamond girl (1973), greatest hits (1975),
The seals & crofts collection (1979) and lift up your voices and sing, vol. 2 (1997).

[During their tour in 1992, S & C substituted the word "Magellan" for the word
"Columbus" in this song -- at least at a concert they gave at the now defunct Circle
Star Theater in Redwood City, Ca. As an Italian-American, I was shocked. The lyric was
Restored when they returned to the Bay Area and played at a Saratoga winery several months later -- ab]

Life, so they say, is but a game and we let it slip away.
Love, like the Autumn sun, should be dyin' but it's only just begun.
Like the twilight in the road up ahead, they don't see just where we're goin'.
And all the secrets in the Universe, whisper in our ears
And all the years will come and go, take us up, always up.
We may never pass this way again. We may never pass this way again.
We may never pass this way again.

Dreams, so they say, are for the fools and they let 'em drift away.
Peace, like the silent dove, should be flyin' but it's only just begun.
Like Columbus in the olden days, we must gather all our courage.
Sail our ships out on the open sea. Cast away our fears
And all the years will come and go, and take us up, always up.
We may never pass this way again. We may never pass this way again.
We may never pass this way again.

So, I wanna laugh while the laughin' is easy. I wanna cry if it makes it worthwhile.
We may never pass this way again, that's why I want it with you.
'Cause, you make me feel like I'm more than a friend. Like I'm the journey and you're the journey's end.
We may never pass this way again, that's why I want it with you, baby.

We may never pass this way again. We may never pass this way again.
We may never pass this way again. We may never pass this way again.
