Lyrics
THE END OF THE RETURN
(Words & Music by Rick Wakeman)

(Sung by The English Chamber Choir)

Return to the centre of the earth,
A world within a world,
An endless journey in time.
Return to an origin of life,
Of secrets left untold,
A mountain there to climb.

Return to the centre of the earth
Heaven waiting for life to appear
In a perfect creation of time,
A message for no-one to hear.

Time,
Time within a world,
Centre,
Centre of the earth,
Searching for secrets of time,
A sign.

Return to the origin of time,
To the hidden cry of man,
To a sanctuary of life beneath the earth,
A meeting place,
A point of no return to the centre of the earth.

The return to the centre of the earth,
To a wonderland of dreams,
Everlasting in the understanding of our belonging,
And to the race that can never be won.
Evermore the meaning of future presence,
With the oracle leading to the centre of the earth,
The earth,
Return,
Return to the centre of the earth,
To a wonderalnd of dreams,
There's a world within a world,
Find the place of no return,
To the centre of the earth.
