How did we get So far from where we started? History fades, place to place Will I find my destination? I’d choose going with you If you asked, if you asked What do I have to prove? Never going back It’s the past. It doesn’t last What would it take To forget where I've been? A crowd of memories Chases me around I’d choose going with you if you asked, if you asked What do I have to prove? Never going back It’s the past. It doesn't last

I wonder why all my heroes have died Crazy, alone, or screaming in the night Is it in me lord? Is it in me too? Don’t let it get from me to you Well I find myself back in the valley of my youth But the rolling waves won’t let me See into the bottom of the blue It’s simple without you Little sister don’t let the world get you down Dream of the sky from the underground There’s beauty in the wasteland if you look around And one day you’re bound to be found Well I find myself leaving the valley of my youth But your words I cannot swallow Though I chew and chew and chew Are you ever coming back? You’ve been absent my whole life Tell me what you’re thinking about There’s no easy answer Tell me what you know about me And when will my speech be free Tell me what you’re thinking about There’s no easy answer Tell me what you know about me And when will my speech be free Little Sister There’s hope for you Keep asking questions And you’ll find the truth Tell me what you’re thinking about There’s no easy answer Tell me what you know about me And when will my speech be free Tell me what you’re thinking about There’s no easy answer Tell me what you know about me Little sister it’s you and me

When I whisper you goodnight I dream a dream of getting it right For the final time of so many mistakes You should leave me behind I keep making you wait Doesn’t seem quite fair that we never had the time For me to belong to you and for you to be mine I was breaking your heart while my own fell to pieces Now I’m picking up the mess, time will heal the rest Every time that I turned away I knew if I stayed we’d never be the same Knowing you was finding me and choosing a destiny Before I knew the facts now there’s no turning back!

The thaw of the ice And the melting of snow I called you twice And twice you said no The skies are turning grey Our love will melt away A new season is coming And who knows what it will bring No one is smiling It’s the time for divorce When unhappy couples Find new lovers once more And the streets are all weeping Tracking mud on the floor Siberian springtime Siberian spring Everyone is my Brother Everyone is my friend But my lover has left me and I’ll never see My daughter again Siberian Spring time It’s cruel and its kind It gives back what it takes from you Most of the time Siberian springtime Siberian spring Siberian springtime Siberian spring Siberian springtime Siberian spring Siberian springtime Siberian spring
