The Alan Parsons Project - Days are numbers (The traveller)
Tekst en muziek: Alan Parsons en Eric Woolfson
(1984)






The traveller is always leaving town
He never has the time to turn around
And if the road he’s taken isn’t leading anywhere
He seems to be completely unaware



The traveller is always leaving home
The only kind of life he’s ever known
When every moment seems to be a race against the time
There’s always one more mountain left to climb



Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you’ll know where you are



Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you’ll know where you are



The traveller awaits the morning tide
He doesn’t know what’s on the other side
But something deep inside of him keeps telling him to go
He hasn’t found a reason to say no



The traveller is only passing through
He cannot understand your point of view
Abandoning reality, unsure of what he’ll find
The traveller in me is close behind



Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you’ll know where you are



Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you’ll know where you are



Remember
Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you’ll know where you are



Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
