Remember our promise
That as long as we live,
We'll care for each other
Thru pain and thru comfort,
That we'll go together
No matter rain or shine
Until we reach the ends of the earth?
We would travel far, always going
To places we'd not seen,
We would travel far, and then meet those
Who would travel by our side,
And we would travel far, and discover
The secrets we can't see,
And you and I will share the wonders of the world.
And though we didn't know, just how vast were
All the seas and all the lands,
Though we didn't have, any idea
How to shield us from danger,
And though we didn't have anyone whom
We could turn to for guidance,
I've never felt so sure as when I'm by your side.
And so we set out from home,
To travel through the land,
Seeking out all the places
That we'd not been to before.
With just the two of us,
We could go where we willed.
Just call to me and I'll come with you.
Whenever I've gotten lost,
You've always found me again.
And when I've fallen behind,
You've always waited for me.
And when we've traveled far,
You've always known the way.
I'll follow you wherever you go.
And now we've seen so much
In this land of strangers,
Met so many people
Made friends beyond number.
And though I knew them well,
I never thought to wonder:
For the one I trust was always with me.
Do you remember how on the eve of twilight
We’d watched the setting of the sun,
How beneath the stars of the endless night
You’d gone to sleep upon my lap?
And when we’d woke again to dawn’s first light
We’d yawned and snoozed the morn away;
That moment then, with you and me, just felt so right.
Do you remember how all the things we’ve done,
we’d gone and done them together?
How through rain or shine we kept walking on,
with you always walking by my side?
When through the bitter cold of the winter nights
We had gone to bed side by side;
You’d always brought, your joy and warmth, into my life.
So we searched out all the lands that
None had ever been to before;
Read and learned of all the secrets
Of the world that’s all around us;
But the greatest of our findings
Is the wonder that’s within;
With you alone, there’s no secret, I won’t reveal.
And so we’ve sailed all the high seas,
Walked to the ends of all the land.
We were children when we’d set out;
We’d seen and learned so much since then.
We had walked to the ends of earth,
Just as we’d promised long ago,
And so at last, we’d turned around, to go back home.
I shall cherish and remember
all the memories we have shared,
Keep the tokens of the times when
We’d felt our sorrows and delights;
But just the thought of our parting
Brings the tears down from my eyes;
How can I bear, to not have you, walk by my side?
And so we’ve said our good-byes
To the places we’ve passed by,
Told the stories of our travels
With friends of our youth,
And while each parting’s hard
I’ll save all my tears for last,
For the one I’ll miss will always be you.
And so we've gone so far
To lands we've never known,
And now we're back at last,
Back to the land of our home.
Now that it's time to part,
I've never felt so alone.
I want to never have to leave you.
So let us travel again
Beneath the open sky
We could go where we will,
Without a care in the world.
Just let us wander afar
All through this wondrous land,
And I will share its wonders with you.
So let us travel again
Beneath the endless stars,
And go with hand and hand
All through this endless land,
And this time let us walk
Without an end in mind,
And I will walk forever with you.
