This summers finally gone I am pleased to know
The orange glow of the forest lingers still
Hold on tightly hold on my friends it just begun
Hold on tight while their song is being sung

They say it has been a grand affair
They say now our glory days are coming to an end
We’ve roamed freely we have dined with kings
We’ve had a most magnificent fling

Ohh …
I’ve seen glaciers melting before my eyes
And Mountain springs are but a trickle now
Some say that its time to pay
The figure in the black cape is traveling our way

Ohh …

But I’ve also seen love restore sight to the blind
I’ve seen people thrive for 60,000 years
I can see a pathway back to the light again
A final farewell to this magnificent fling

Ohh …

We can find our way again
We can find our way again
We can find our way again
We can find our way again
