A hazy mist hung down the street
The length of it's mile,
As far as my eye could see
The sky so wide, the houses tall
Or so they seemed to be,
So they seemed to me so small,
And it gleamed in the distance
And it shone like the sun,
Like silver and gold, it went on and on.
The summer nights that seemed so long
Always call me back to return,
As I re-write this song
The ghosts of night, the dreams of day
Make me swirl and fall and hold me in their sway,
And it's still in the distance
And it shines like the sun,
Like silver and gold, it goes on and on.
The rolling stock rocked me to sleep,
Amber lights flashing 'cross the street
And on the corner a dream to meet,
Going on and on.
On and on,
On and on
