One Day We Woke Up

One day we woke up and
found we were young.
We laughed and played and cried.
We had few responsibilities.

One day we woke up
and found we were older.
We were still young but mature.
We laughed and played and cried,
but in moderation.

One day we woke up and
found we were all grown up.
We laughed, but not often.
We did not play; we worked,
we cried, but rarely.

One day we woke up and
found we were getting old.
We feared death and
cried oftener. Our kids
had moved away.

One day we woke up and
found we were old.
Our head was gray and white.
We knew that we would die soon.

One day we did not wake up.
We slept and did not wake up.
There were no dreams.
We slept long and deep.

pink floyd high hopes lyrics

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut
There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before times took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
When friends surrounded
The nights of wonder
Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some sleeping tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world
Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we've been so many times
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river
Forever and ever
