​The Ballad Of Fortune

This song is by Galleon and appears on the album Beyond Dreams (2000).

You threw all your money into the wishing well
All to bring luck wealth and success
Prosperity and affection
The future was all that you needed
To put the world at your feet
Depended on hope trusted in fate
For things to come your way

I want to rise from this ditch I want to be rich
I will pay every fee if you please come to me
I will hitchhike my way back home
I will crawl bleed and groan
If you just make my will come true
My new life starts here with you
Upon a face a smile, so new

As the years went by you had to revise your account
Taking your time limit the claims
Aiming a little lower
Misfortunes they did not stop you you were looking the other way
You always knew that beyond the next bend
You'll find the rainbows end

Something's are meant to be
Some must be meant for me
And you could see for miles, you could see for miles
You could see for miles, miles and miles...

In search of a fortune and everyday treasure
That's what you deserve
If you finally win your life would begin
That's a state you would prefer
Do you know where you are cause this state is so far
There's a chance this can go wrong

But you could see for miles, yes you could see for miles
You could see for miles, miles and miles

Sometimes I've been on the border of the land where dreams come true
But it's always the same I'm back once again
To the square where I once started out
Now when I'm old and lonely I've come to realize
It was a waste back at the well
Now I'm waiting for a change
