Achilles Last Stand

It was an April morning when they told us we should go
An' as I turn to you, you smiled at me, how could they say no
Whoa, the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Whoa, the songs to sing when we at last return again

Swept New York a glancing kiss to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss, the devil is in his ho-o-old
Whoa, to sail away to sandy lands and other days
Whoa, to touch the dream, hides inside and is never seen, yeah

Into the sun, the south the north, at last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitments fell in pieces on the ground
Oh, to ride the wind, to tread the air above the din
Whoa, to laugh aloud with dancing eyes across the crowd, yeah

T' seek the man whose pointing hand, the giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path that churns up into stone
If one bell should ring in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat as proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

Oooooooohhhhhhhhhh

(Guitar Solo)

Days went by when you and I bathed in eternal summer's glow
As far away and distant, our mutual child did grow
Whoa, the sweet refrain soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh, Albion remains sleeping now to rise again

Wandering and wondering, what place to rest this hurt
For the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth

For the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth
whoaaaaaaaaaaa

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Ohhhhh, ohhhhh
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ooh
For the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth

Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah

Woo-ooh-ooohhhhhhhhhhhhh
