I Can't Get There From Here lyrics

Seize the day
That was what you always told me
Find a way
You would say as you would hold me
Get away from here
It's all so clear
You can't stay

Long ago
We were old enough to love
But not to know
There were dreams we kept inside
But didn't show
and now we don't know
how to let go

I can't get there from here
And you can't get here from there
And we can't go anywhere
As long as we're still standing on this road that leads
Nowhere

Touch the sky
If you don't, when you grow old
You'll wonder why
You did just what you were told
No one will cry for you
If all you do
Is long to fly

I can see
Our final curtain falling
Let it be
Listen to the voices calling out
To all who hear
Don't let your fear
Push life aside

I can't get there from here
And you can't get here from there
And we can't go anywhere
As long as we're still standing on this road that leads
Nowhere

But out there it gleams
Far beyond all the things we know
The world of our dreams
Calling to us but we don't go

I can't get there from here
And you can't get here from there
And we can't go anywhere
As long as we're still standing on the road that leads
Nowhere

The road that leads nowhere
