The Memory Of Trees Anywhere Is
Credits: Enya; lyrics by Roma Ryan
Appears On: The Memory Of Trees; Paint The Sky With Stars
Language: English


I walk the maze of moments, but everywhere I turn to
Begins a new beginning, but never finds a finish
I walk to the horizon and there I find another
It all seems so surprising and then I find that I know

You go there, you're gone forever
I go there, I'll lose my way
We stay here, we're not together
Anywhere Is

The moon upon the ocean is swept around in motion
But without ever knowing the reason for its flowing
In motion on the ocean, the moon still keeps on moving
The waves still keep on waving and I still keep on going


The shells upon the warm sands have taken from their own lands
The echo of their story, but all I hear are low sounds
As pillow words are weaving and willow waves are leaving
But should I be believing that I am only dreaming?

I wonder if the stars sign the life that is to be mine
And would they let their light shine enough for me to follow?
I look up to the heavens but night has clouded over
No spark of constellation; no Vela, no Orion


To leave the trail of all time and let it make a dark line
In hopes that I can still find the way back to the moment
I took the turn and turned to begin a new beginning
Still looking for the answer I cannot find the finish

It's either this or that way, it's one way or the other
It should be one direction, it could be on reflection
The turn I have just taken, the turn that I was making
I might be just beginning, I might be near the end
