  • Here it comes another lonely day.
    Playing the game, I'll sail away
    On a voyage of no return to see
    If eternal life is meant to be,
    And if I find the key, to the eternal dream.
    The painted ladies of the Avalon.
    Play in the sun, take to the road
    To the north there lies the chills of cold,
    To the south there lies, the tales
    untold,
    But in between their lies, the place
    to close your eyes.

    And I will stay, I'll not be back,
    Eldorado,
    I will be free, of the world
    Eldorado

    Say goodbye the city's heroes sing
    Bird on the wind,
    Feel, feel so free
    Through the life upon the rooftop
    haze,
    All the cheating and the broken days,
    So through it all I see,
    There's nothing left for me.

    And I will stay, I'll not be back,
    Eldorado,
    I will be free, of the world
    Eldorado

    Sitting here on top of everywhere,
    What do I care,
    Days never end.
    I know the voyage's end will soon
    be here,
    No eternal life is here for me,
    And now I found the key,
    To the eternal dream.

    Then I will stay, I'll not be back,
    Eldorado.
    I will be free, of the world,
    Eldorado
