Here the bridges just aren't long Enough, I walk but never Reach the other side. Here this building's never tall Enough for me to touch the sky. I've heard about a place where Everyone knows how to fly, Shangri-La Here statues on a palace Lawn are all the friends I had That turned to stone. Tears rolling down their ivory Cheeks they didn't make it home. I'm going to a land where all the Hearts beat at one time, Shangri-La
Everybody's fine in Shangri-La, Children draw the trees there in Crayola forest green. Everybody smiles in Shangri-La, Built inside the pearly whites so Bright they light the day.
Here within the land of make Believe, it's lipstick and a comb, And it's Judas on a throne. Weird how silver lies and golden Rules they teach their Kids in school to never say Forever so they severed all Their ties with Shangri-La
They say it never rains in Shangri-La a multi-colored Rainbow fades into a neon sky Taste candied coated halos While pakadotted ponies teach The children how to fly
Here our seasons have all Learned to share the summer Sun can warm the winter air Here leaves only fall to kiss The ground and it makes The sweetest sound We'll start another language Using all the words that Rhyme with Shangri-La
The silver snow in Shangri-La Turns to silver sand so it will Never melt away come along With me to Shangri-La we'll Build a silver snowman on the Warmest summers day No one ever cries in Shangri-La We take a kiss and mix it With a glass of ocean wine And if you close your eyes in Shangri-La a million falling stars Will gently whisper you to sleep And when whisper you to sleep And when you wake you'll find It's not a dream.
