I have lived too hard,

I have lived too fast,


And yet somehow,


I thought it would last.


but I now hear the bells


That in reverence toll,


And for whom it is,


I surely know.


For I have traveled,


a bridge too far,


and fought the devil,


on a burning star.


I have tasted sweet victory


And have witnessed early death,


I have seen the world,


in youths gallant quest.


Yet in sadness


I have now laid it to rest.


For I have traveled much too far.


So now, I will just fade to black,


like that once brilliant burning star.
