we used to walk together
but now we have turned and gone our separate ways
down unbeaten paths out into the vast horizon
and we keep increasing between us more distance
once i could still see you back there behind me following
there was even a time when i was following you
but we have grown older and our hearts hardened
the tears have dried up and evaporated
and now we go quietly in other directions
new names now written on our hearts and new committments
new feet share this unbeaten path with us now
