The light looms in the distance,
Taunting the soul of every person
Reach as you wish but it’s never to be reached
Just as it’s in your grasps, it’s gone.
As you hope for the future
The light stares you right in the face
Laughing at your every mistake
As it moves further away.
The unobtainable happiness
The hope to achieve, just vanishes
And you’re stuck in the same place.
Reaching for it but never reaching it.
The light drills right into your soul
The endless yearning that will never subside
Until you realize there is no point
No point in hoping for the future.
Your hopes change,
You change, we all change
As we do the light gets further away
And slips right from our grasp
Just as you think you’ve got it
It’s vanished and it’s gone
The unobtainable hope
Is never to be reached.
