seven cities of gold lyrics – rush

seven cities of gold

a man can lose his past, in a country like this
wandering aimless
parched and nameless
a man could lose his way, in a country like this
canyons and cactus
endless and trackless

searching through grim eternity
sculptured by prehistoric sea

seven cities of gold
stories that fired my imagination
seven cities of gold
a splendid mirage in this desolation
seven cities of gold
glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
glitter in the sun like a revelation
distant as a comet or a constellation

a man can lose himself, in a country like this
rewrite the story
recapture the glory
a man could lose his life, in a country like this
sunblind and friendless
frozen and endless

and the nights grow longer, the farther i go
wake to aching cold, and a deep sahara of snow

seven cities of gold
stories that fired my imagination
seven cities of gold
a splendid mirage in this desolation
seven cities of gold
glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
glitter in the sun like a revelation
distant as a comet or a constellation

that gleam in the distance could be heaven’s gate
a long-awaited treasure at the end of my cruel fate

seven cities of gold
stories that fired my imagination
seven cities of gold
a splendid mirage in this desolation
seven cities of gold
glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
glitter in the sun like a revelation
distant as a comet or a constellation
