The Undiscovered Country
All those who go before us The mothers and the kings Shakespeare and my father Who kick dust up in my dreams If you're too close to the voices You can stray far from the track So goodbye, my friends It's my turn to won't look back The ghosts have had their moment Now they fade into the sun Shining like a carousel When summer's just begun Bonded for their silence And I threw away the key Someone's going down But it's not me All because I'm thankful for what we don't understand The undiscovered country between a woman and a man All those who follow after Are children who we pledge To a story of some sailors Who float beyond the edge To their We want them to retire Just beyond their grasp And plain desires The old men never helped us They took our every vow Turned them into money And look where we are now Waiting for a savior But she walks alone to sea And someone's going down She went down for me And still she says she's thankful for what we don't understand The undiscovered country in every woman, every man Some day will come the questions With no answers, but we ask Just the same when we were children Which was sweet but doesn't last From the undiscovered country We hear the old refrain The sky is blue For the few who remain All because I'm thankful for the things we never planned The undiscovered country in every woman, every man Raise a glass, be thankful for what we don't understand The undiscovered country between a woman and a man
