By the cathedral into the sun
The pilgrims are singing
Their journey done
I look at my short life
And think of all the champagne
That I drink
With all the faces I know
And how much further can one go?
And if I decide to step aside
I will try to replay
To the feelings I hide
I look from my window
Down to the square
At workers still queuing there
For market forces to provide
What history's so far denied
For a different kind of fate
Than to labour long and always wait
And if I decide to step aside
I will try to return
To the person inside
Will I always need you?
Would you want me to?
Can you love me for good
The way you thought you could?
Or will spring bring rain
And summer burn?
Will tears at last precede
The turn from summer warmth
To sudden cold
As certainly as growing old?
And if I decide to step aside
I will try to forget all the tears
I'll have cried
