Avenue of Hope - Lyrics

Along the avenue of hope
The footsteps falter, the fingers grope
and days, stretch out, beneath the sun
No-one's born, and no-one dies, no-one lives, so no-one cries
and we wait to see just what we will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me ride
Don't let the earth in me subside
Let me see just who I will become

You're like the clouds in my home town
You just grow fat and hang around
and you're days stretch out beneath the sun

and you don't live, you don't die, you don't love so you don't cry
and we wait, to see just what we will become

Don't let me borrow, don't let me bring
Don't let me wallow, don't make me sing
Let me see just who I will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me hide
Don't let someone else decide
Just who or what I will become

Don't let them borrow, don't let them bring
Don't let them wallow, don't make them sing

Along the avenue of hope
the footsteps falter, the fingers grope
& the days, stretch out, beneath the sun.
No-one's born, no-one dies, no-one loves, so no-one cries
& we wait to see just, what we will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me ride
Don't let the earth in me subside
Let me see just who I will become

You're like the clouds in my home town
You just grow fat & hang around
& your days stretch out beneath the sun
& no-one's born, & no-one dies, no-one loves, so no-one cries
& we wait to see just, what we will become

Don't let me borrow, don't let me bring
Don't let me wallow, don't make me sing
Let me see just, who I will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me hide
Don't let someone else decide
Just who or what, I will become

Don't make 'em borrow, don't make 'em bring
Don't let them wallow, don't let them sing
let them stretch out, beneath the sun.

Along the Avenue of Hope
the footsteps falter, the fingers grope
& your days, stretch out, beneath the sun.
No-one's born, no-one dies, no-one loves, so no-one cries
& we wait to see just what, we will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me ride
Don't let the earth in me subside
Let me stretch out, beneath the sun

You're like the clouds in my home town
You just grow fat & hang around
& your days, stretch out, beneath the sun
no-one's born, no-one dies, no-one loves, so no-one cries
& we wait to see just what, we will become

Don't let me falter, don't let me ride
Don't let the earth in me subside
Let me see what I, will become

Don't let me borrow, don't let me bring
Don't let me wallow, don't make me sing
Let me stretch out, beneath the sun

Don't let me falter, don't let me ride
Don't let the earth in me subside
Let me see what I, will become
