There’s a world that’s out there, one that I shall never see
With all its magic music and such happiness for free
It reaches now to touch me with sights I have never known
Though I shan’t live to see it for my time is not my own.
I can sight the lights afar and do hear the distant sound
Distinctly in the twilight as the darkness closes round
And I’m sure that someone else will be right there to share it
As for me the truth is this, I’ve no strength left to dare it !
