lyrics

it was once an empire, the romans
they had a great empire, the romans
it fell down, collapsed
all the stones turned to dust

he was once a great man, mahatma
he was once a great one, beethoven
they're all gone, they died
they're six feet underground

it was the edge of technology, sputnik
it was once the final frontier into space
it fell down, ten thousand feet per second
its remains, in the bottom of the sea

it was once a great love, ours
we lived for each other, our souls touched and danced in the air
and now you don't even know me
and you say the same words to someone else
you stroll through the places, that once were our own
and no thought about me, comes up

nothing stays forever
(everything goes, everything goes)
nothing stays forever
(everything goes, everything goes)
only memories remain
until the wind blows them away
