  • A man can lose his past, in a country like this
    Wandering aimless
    Parched and nameless

    A man could lose his way, in a country like this
    Canyons and cactus
    Endless and trackless

    Searching through a grim eternity
    Sculptured by a prehistoric sea

    Seven Cities of Gold
    With stories that fired my imagination
    Seven Cities of Gold
    A splendid mirage in this desolation
    Seven Cities of Gold
    Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
    Glitter in the sun like a revelation
    Distant as a comet or a constellation

    A man can lose himself, in a country like this
    Rewrite the story
    Recapture the glory

    A man could lose his life, in a country like this
    Sun-blind and friendless
    Frozen and endless

    And the nights grow longer, the farther I go
    Wake to aching cold, and a deep Sahara of snow

    Seven Cities of Gold
    With stories that fired my imagination
    Seven Cities of Gold
    A splendid mirage in this desolation
    Seven Cities of Gold
    Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
    Glitter in the sun like a revelation
    Distant as a comet or a constellation

    Oh, that gleam in the distance could be heaven's gate
    A long-awaited treasure at the end of my cruel fate

    Seven Cities of Gold
    With stories that fired my imagination
    Seven Cities of Gold
    A splendid mirage in this desolation
    Seven Cities of Gold
    Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations
    Glitter in the sun like a revelation
    Distant as a comet or a constellation Writer/s: Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Neil Elwood Peart
