Childhood Memories

This song is by Eloy and appears on the album The Tides Return Forever (1994).

Original video
Before my eyes pictures appear
From long ago but still so clear
With skies of blue, wind in my hair
We shared a moment without a single care

I still remember one summer's day
She held my hand to lead the way
And showed me treasures, love in her smile
We strolled the meadows and sang a lullaby

Wild flowers were in bloom, wearing my crown of dew
And sunrays on the leaves danced in and out of view

Hear the stream that's flowing by
Swallows flying in the sky
All the beauties of the land
I began to understand
On that day she held my hand

Brilliant colours all around
Million wonders to be found
While the perfume in the air
Takes my senses unawares
Giving joy without compare

Her tender voice whispered a sound
And made my heart begin to pound
A children's rhyme rings in my ears
Captured in my mind to dissipate all fears

Roaming in my dream
Feeling as I did before
Safe within my memories
Opening that secret door

Brilliant colours all around
Million wonders to be found
Thousand graceful butterflies
Rise to fill this paradise
As they catch me by surprise

Hear the stream that's flowing by
Swallows flying in the sky
Endless haunting melodies
Spreading mystic poetry
To enlight my fantasy

There's a rainbow in my heart
Even though we had to part
Shining on forever bright
Like a diamond in the night
Always there to make things right
