[edit] Lyrics

The roads go ever, ever on
To the lands beyond the sea
On a white ship will I sail
Watching shadows part for me.

Leaving Havens gray with rain
Now that years have slipped away
Leaving friends with gentle pain
As they start another day.
 
The roads I travel I must leave
For I've turned the final bend
Weep not empty tears but grieve
As the roads come to an end.

Its so easy not to try
Let the world go drifting by
If you never say hello
You won't have to say goodbye!
