Fewer Torches To Light the Way
Lyrics Paul Dempsey/California

(v1)
Sometimes their time was too brief
Like the blazing red of an autumn leaf
But their splendor was undeniable
They saw things that others couldn’t
They did things that others wouldn’t
And each one was justifiable

(Refrain)
They were the heroes of yesterday
Now gone, there are fewer torches
To light the way

(v2)
They are the ones we all know
Because they left an afterglow
And we all bathe in it now
Bigger than life on the grand stage
They bent all the bars of the cage
Escaping tyranny somehow

(Refrain)
They were the heroes of yesterday
Now gone, there are fewer torches
To light the way

(v3)
They were not confined by limits
Never felt the need to mimic
They beat their own drum
Always moving straight ahead
Never being misled
Never under any one’s thumb

(Refrain)
They were the heroes of yesterday
Now gone, there are fewer torches
To light the way

(outro)
Now the question remains
And needs to be asked
Who among you
Will accept this task
Who will grab hold
Of this torch when passed
