​The Sweet Hereafter

This song is by Sarah Polley and appears on the movie soundtrack The Sweet Hereafter (1997) by ​Mychael Danna.

He led us he said to a joyous land
Joining the town and just at hand
Honeybees had lost their stings
Horses were born with eagle wings
The sweet hereafter waters gushed and fruit trees grew
The sweet hereafter flowers put forth a fairer hue
All the little boys and girls
With rosy cheeks and flaxen curls
Sparkling eyes and teeth like pearls
Tripping and skipping run merrily after
The music with laughter
The sweet hereafter waters gushed and fruit trees grew
The sweet hereafter flowers put forth a fairer hue
The sweet hereafter and everything was strange and new
As they reached the mountain's side
A wondrous portal opened wide
A cavern was suddenly hollowed
The piper advanced the children followed
When all were in to the very last
The door in the mountainside shut fast
The sweet hereafter waters gushed and fruit trees grew
The sweet hereafter flowers put forth a fairer hue
The sweet hereafter and everything was strange and new
The sweet hereafter waters gushed and fruit trees grew
The sweet hereafter flowers put forth a fairer hue
The sweet hereafter and everything was strange and new
The sweet hereafter waters gushed and fruit trees grew
The sweet hereafter flowers put forth a fairer hue
The sweet hereafter and everything was strange and new
