There And Back Again

©2002 by Steve Macdonald

Time, time passes so long
When you’re far away
Time, time passes so long
When friends are far away…

Planes land, cars drive up
Trains pull through the station
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Autumn too;
Another weekend’s begun

And we’ll sing on through the night
And we’ll hold each other tight
Yes we’ll sing on through the night

Soft shoe tap dance, New Year’s toast
Ties and tails all around
All those who bring us here each year
Even Mad Hatters abound

And we’ll sing on through the night
And we’ll hold each other tight
Yes we’ll sing on through the night

Chorus
What a year, oh, what a year!
All those many voices raised as one, together
What a year, oh, what a year!
To stand and join the song-

Bardic circles give us each a turn
Cat’s cradle, puzzle, buckyball
Chaos abounds all over the world
It’s to us the songs call

Chorus

Pegasus flies, SAM holds his pose
More Fame in the Hall
Contests, parodies, a golden Kazoo
New music enriches us all

Chorus

Planes landed, cars drove up
Trains pulled through on their way
Wherever you were, all over the world
The feeling was the same

So we’ll sing on through the night
No noise limiter in sight
Yes we’ll sing on through the night
Emotions higher than a kite
Sing on
As One
As One
Sing on

Time, time passes so long
When friends are far away
Time, time passes so long
When you’re far away…
