lyrics

Laughter & Love

I’ve been to places I never thought I would ever see
I’ve embraced the changes
Took everything that they threw at me

And here I am still going strong
Guided by laughter and love
But this is not a dream you dream alone

From Derry to Santiago from Berlin to Tuscany
From Rio to San Francisco all spent in good company

And here we are still travelling on
Guided by laughter and love
For this is not a life to live alone

The only truth I’ve ever known
Is the dice roll and the rivers flow
Then you find the one you’re looking for
And it turns out they’ve been looking for you

This world so full of sorrow
Is like a great big broken clock
If we keep shaking it will rattle
Someday it will all just stop

So here’s to you believers in
The magic of laughter and love
May you never dream your dream alone
