A Distant Bell

By Bruce Clifford

A sound in the distance
This faraway noise
Way too far to tell
The sound of a distant bell


I canít hear the water droplet
Too many miles in between the chaos
You never told me how you heard it
The sound so distant I canít put my finger on it


The scent of yesterday high up in the air
Dreams of tomorrow should anyone care


A sound in the distance
This faraway noise
Too distant to tell
The girls and the boys


I can hear the faded voices
Too many trials and forgotten choices
The waves of plenty are lost with the few
The sound so distant and out of view


The scent of yesterday high up in the air
Dreams of tomorrow should anyone care


A sound in the distance
This faraway noise
Way too far to tell
The sound of a distant bell
