Remember when we chased dragons
Remember long days
now gone by
There was neither night nor day
but an ever-eve of glooming light
when first there glimmered into sight
our Cottage of Lost Play

Oh one day we'll be strong enough
to sing these songs again
Some day we'll be old enough
to read these fairy tales... again

Remember when we were free to dream
and every waking star
led us to play
There was no grind from day to night
no bitter hearts or loveless wight
and off we rode in matchless might
from our castle to win the day


Remember when we forgot the way
and every winding path
led us astray
to riches trapped in towers tall
with heroes only raised to fall
And every heart behind a wall
hoping for someday
