Lyrics/Notes

there came a time for the old man
when a place of beauty, a lay of land
spoke out to him, said understand,
you should rest now,
i’m an open hand
and the man said yes!

i’d like the days here
i’d like the nights here
here I will settle me down
i’ll spend my days here
the rest of my days here
here I will watch the world go round

there came a time for the old man
when a place of beauty, a lay of land
spoke out to him like a long lost friend
said stay with me now until the end
the man said yes!

I’d like the summers here
i’d like the winters
here I will settle me down
i’ll spend my days here
rest of my days here
here I will watch
the world go round

and so they lived
the man and the land
they lived as one
until the end
and the man sang out

I like the days here
I like the nights here
oh! how the world spins around
I like the summers here
I like the winters here
here I will sleep in the ground
here I will sleep in the ground
here I will sleep in the ground
