Where?

Once upon a time, far away
There was an old man telling wondrous tales
Of Elves and Dwarves and Wizards grey
Where is he now?

Once upon a time, far away
There were two rascals running here and there
Full of laughter, jokes and joy were they
Where are they now?

Once upon a time, far away
There was a gardener trimming in the sun
Shyly looking at the pretty maid
Where is he now?

Once upon a time, far away
There was a lad with big innocent eyes
Sitting under a tree, reading all day
Where is he now?

Gone now, they all went away
The old man’s stories are no longer heard
Away he went and there he’ll stay
He is now lost

Gone now, they all went away
The rascals hardened in bloody wars
Their spirits no longer want to play
They are now lost

Gone now, they all went away
The gardener forgot the sight of green
In this world, where all is black and grey
He is now lost

Gone now, they all went away
Innocent eyes spoiled by the sight of fear
For this soul there is no break of day
For it is lost.
