The World Beyond (Paris Daydreaming)

First, let me give a thank-you to Ted Kiper for providing the vocals and piano for this song.

This is one of those songs that you would never guess what it's about unless someone simply told you. Then you'd slap your forehead and say, "Oh, of course!"

Sadly, I'm not going to simply tell you what it's about. William wrote the lyrics about something that's very close to his heart, but if it reminds you of something that's close to yours, all the better. Officially, it's about whatever you believe it to be about.




The World Beyond (Paris Daydreaming)

Reaching out in wonder to the world beyond 
With arms too short to satisfy a curiosity so strong 
Day by day the beckoning a silent beacon calls 
From inklings of infinity to dreams beyond these walls 

I wandered beyond the stone today 
Tomorrow the avenue 
And someday I may fly away 
To that place they call the moon 

Many are the windows under lock so little means 
But in an infants hands may lie the keys of destiny 
Marvel at the wonder of the endless world beyond 
And explore the possibilities of mysteries not yet known 

I wandered beyond the stone today 
Tomorrow the avenue 
And someday I may fly away 
To that place they call the moon 

Instinctive the desire 
Insatiable the quest 
Though the mind will journey freely 
It's imprisoned by the flesh 

I wandered beyond the stone today 
Tomorrow the avenue 
And someday I may fly away 
To that place they call the moon 

Someday I may just fly away 
To that place they call the moon
