  • A vision, a flash of light
    A gift we were given, within each other's dreams
    We lived in the gardens of Avalon
    Together, believed that we could live there forever
    Then it faded away
    Forgetting, we wandered too far from the land we'd known

    Of all the lonely people, you're among the lucky few
    If it comes even once in a life

    [Chorus]
    Love is a lesson hard to learn
    It's never as easy to return
    But if you're willing to go on
    We'll find a way back to Avalon

    Avalon

    They had it, it wasn't far away or imagined
    He held her in his arms and planned it all
    The towers of Avalon
    They warned him, he only turned around for a moment
    And everything had changed
    He noticed the sun on her face as she turned away

    All the lonely people, you're among the lucky few
    If it comes even once in a life

    [Chorus]

    And when you come to know the miracle, it's mystical
    When someone else's heart is in your hand
    I learned too late, now I must try and find a way back home, ohh

    Here is a lesson hard to learn
    It's never as easy to return
    But if you're willing to go on
    We'll find a way back to Avalon

    (Avalon)
    We gotta go back, someday we'll get it back
    (Avalon)
    We gotta get it back
    (Avalon)
    Somebody show me a way, somebody tell me the way
    (Avalon)

    (Avalon)
    We gotta go back, someday we'll get it back
    (Avalon)
    We gotta get it back
    (Avalon)
    Somebody show me a way, somebody tell me the way
