A song about a magical love, with a new meaning about 'forever'


The Archway
music: John Curtin, lyrics & melody, Joel Pirard, arrangement, Jester's Promenade

She was a raven-haired beauty
She was a reason for life
When she looked at me the light did shine
I’d never had that feeling before
In the mystic garden, in the cooling rain
Singing out our lives as we danced upon the plain
Like a living fantasy, a dream to behold
Who could imagine, how the tale would unfold?
And when we would meet, with mischief in her eyes
The fullness of my heart would almost make me cry
Once in a lifetime, one gets to feel free
The meeting of souls, come to pass.
In the sadness of time, she suddenly died,
The unbreakable bond torn apart
What could I do, I was losing my mind
All alone with the pieces of my heart

I ran to the Archway, where we first met
I sat there and I cried out to the stars
How long it was, I do no know,
I can’t recall
Somehow a voice, that I could hear
Looking up I saw her, on the other side
Smiling as always she said:
“promises broken, have not happened here, we’ll be together again”
The light in the Archway
Shimmered as she spoke
“Remember my love I will be here
She held up her hand in a gesture of farewell
Remember I’ll always be here,
Waiting for you
Remember I’ll always be here,
Waiting for you
In the Archway, I’ll be waiting for you… through the Archway, on the other side

Ever wonder what inspired our name?

Here it is: From Pinnacle by KANSAS.

"Cast this shadow long that I may hide my face

And in this cloak of darkness, the world I will embrace

In all that I endure, of one thing I am sure

Knowledge and reason change like the season, a jester's promenade"
