Lyrics

We met by fate or happenstance                                                                                                              
A life or two ago                                                                                                                                               
And tied a lasting thread                                                                                                                               
Between the center of our souls                                                                                                                                        
This spin around the wheel                                                                                                                         
Had traveled over half its arc                                                                                                                      
When destiny revealed the road                                                                                                              
That brought you closer to my heart                                                                                                                                                       
 
My life has been an odyssey                                                                                                                       
A million wayward steps                                                                                                                               
I sailed in charted waters                                                                                                                              
When I should have dared the depths                                                                                                                             
I will find my destination                                                                                                                               
If you’ll be my northern star                                                                                                                       
You’re a thousand miles away                                                                                                                    
But you’ve never been closer to my heart                                                                                                                      
 
You give me every reason                                                                                                    
To believe that love will not be bound                                                                                    
By the counting of the seasons of our lives                                                                                                                  
And when our time has ended                                                                                                  
The future is extended                                                                                                         
By the power of the love that will survive                                                                                                                             
 
Some future morning far away                                                                                                                  
Two lovers will embrace                                                                                                                               
Who think that through a chance event                                                                                                 
They stumbled to that place                                                                                                                                                 
Each beginning has an ending                                                                                                                     
But their final au revoir                                                                                                                                  
Will hold the persevering trace of love                                                                                                   
That brought you closer to my heart                                                                                                                                 
 
Each beginning has an ending                                                                                                                     
But our final au revoir                                                                                                                                    
Will hold the persevering trace of love                                                                                                    That brought you closer to my heart
