ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You can see the video at this link: http://www.youtube.com/glenndiamond

This song is not about any specific individual person, or any specific Native American Nation, but rather an homage -- a testimony if you will -- to the spirit of those who could think beyond the hardships of those times, and see into the future. A future where there is life, and hope, and a world in which the American Indian Nations are once again regaining their lands, and their rights. This song is intended to celebrate that, and the history, and hope of all people, everywhere. -- Here are the lyrics:

Far Away (Beyond the Stars)

Once there was a great man
Who rode with the sun
Somewhere in the great plains
Of the West from yesteryear,

Across the wild and open range
He rode a trail unmarked
Freedom to him was the wind
The spirit of the plains – and he saw:

Far away, (chorus)
Far away beyond the stars,
Far away,
Far away across the land,
Far Away,
Where others could not see,
Far away,
Far away beyond the stars;

Once there was a great man
Who knew what would be
The world that was coming soon
Would be the end of him,

The spirit of the mountain wind
The bite of the winter chill
Would soon be part of history
Of the West from yesteryear – and he saw:

Far away, (chorus)
Far away beyond the stars,
Far away,
Far away across the land,
Far Away,
Where others could not see,
Far away,
Far away beyond the stars;

He saw that one day there would be
No more Buffalo
He shed a tear for his family
His sons who would never know,

Riding free across the plains
Following the wind
All this now would soon the lost
In the West of yesteryear – and he saw:

Far away, (chorus)
Far away beyond the stars,
Far away,
Far away across the land,
Far Away,
Where others could not see,
Far away,
Far away beyond the stars;

Once there was a great man
They say he could see
The future of his people
And the way things would be,

And although he died long ago
His visions all came true
A hundred years of sadness
Has finally come to the end – that he saw:

Far away, (chorus)
Far away beyond the stars,
Far away,
Far away across the land,
Far Away,
Where others could not see,
Far away,
Far away beyond the stars;

Far away, (chorus)
Far away beyond the stars,
Far away,
Far away across the land,
Far Away,
Where others could not see,
Far away,
Far away beyond the stars;

Far away,
Far away beyond the stars; TAG
