Theres still time to change the road your on...

There's a lady who's sure

All that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows

If the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

 

There's a sign on the wall

But she wants to be sure

'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

In a tree by the brook

There's a songbird who sings

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

It makes me wonder

 

There's a feeling I get

When I look to the west

and my spirit is crying for leaving

In my thoughts I have seen

Rings of smoke through the trees

And the voices of those who stand looking

And it makes me wonder

 

And it's whispered that soon

If we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn

For those who stand long

And the forest will echo with laughter

 

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow

Don't be alarmed now

It's just a spring clean for the May queen

Yes there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on

And it makes me wonder

 

Your head is humming and it won't go

In case you don't know

The piper's calling you to join him

Dear lady can you hear the wind blow

And did you know

Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind

 

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our souls

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll

 

And she's buying a stairway to heaven...
