Lyrics
We’ve come to today through hard work and chains
We lift up our hearts but blood falls like rain
We’ve come through today to horror and pain

And once we had life in the palm of our hands
But we held on too tight and it fell through like sand
Let’s hope that tommorrow we better undestand

Left on the shores of Neverland
Gone too far on the seas to find the land
Hope somehow we’re get our ships back in flight
But for now we’re lost in an eternal night

Hope and pray someday we’ll find out if life somehow has meaning
The way to Heaven requires a bit of dreaming, not only through the ceiling
Someday we’ll find out meaning some way

The road to success is bumpy with rocks
With more than its share of low blows and hard knocks
But you don’t always find happiness at the top

And once we had life in the palm of our hands
But it was taken from us, givin to a better man
He may lose it too if he doesn’t understand

Left on the shores of Neverland
Gone too far on the seas to find the land
Hope somehow we’re get our ships back in flight
But for now we’re lost in an eternal night

Hope and pray someday we’ll find out if life somehow has meaning
The way to Heaven requires a bit of dreaming, not only through the ceiling
Someday we’ll find out meaning some way

Left on the shores of Neverland
Gone too far on the seas to find the land
But somehow we’re get our ships back in flight
But for now we’re lost in an eternal night

Hope and pray someday we’ll find out if life somehow has meaning
The way to Heaven requires a bit of dreaming
Someday we’ll find out if life somehow has meaning
The way to Heaven requires a bit of dreaming, not only through the ceiling
Someday we’ll find out meaning some way

Analysis: The best song from the early years of 1987-88. A philosophical lyric shared by two “voices”, guides the driving acoustic guitars, which were added in 1990 to the original 1988 all-electric recording, which is laid bare during the odd yet entertaining guitar lead.

  1. Can’t find a really safcitastory recording of the Carl Sandburg song; the James Taylor version is way over-arranged; is as close as I can get. I suppose I should record the darn thing myself rather than just griping about it. Oh! was that a gripe? Maybe I’ll be posting some more, if I’m starting to gripe again already.
