Forgotten Dreams

As I walked out one summer's morning
I saw a man I didn't know
He spoke to me as if in warning:
"You don't know which way to go"

And so I walked and he told me
About the life I hadn't seen
About the people gathered 'round me
People from forgotten dreams

And as he spoke I saw around me
A thousand people I had known
Some were living some were dying
Some had lived their lives alone

All their eyes were set upon me
All the hopes they'd ever known
And I knew in that moment
An inner peace I'd never known

All my worries all my heartaches
Look to me like grains of sand
Every day and every moment
I'd lived in the promised land
