Allan Taylor - For Those We Knew



We saw the times
We wrote the songs of cafe bars
And midnight chimes
In perfect rhymes
That danced with melodies in song
We sang the times

We paid our dues
We took the road and played the game
Of win or lose
We chose the muse
She led us on in neon lights
Of midnight hues

And through it all
The rise and fall
The come and go, the lost and won
We made our way
And took the day
We marched to rhythms of our own
And travelled on

A single star
That seemed to hang on the horizon
From afar
A perfect star
A city streetlight in the night
This was our star
And through it all
The rise and fall
The come and go, the lost and won
We made our way
And took the day
We marched to rhythms of our own
And travelled on

For those we knew
The ones we lost along the way
The chosen few
They left too soon
But we're the ones who'll carry on
For those we knew

And through it all
The rise and fall
The come and go, the lost and won
We made our way
And took the day
We marched to rhythms of our own
And travelled on
