Mark on the Wall   (words and music by Bill Pere)

In the hall, there is a pencil line
On the wall, been there since I was nine
Though the years have brought so many tears
Still I find

When I fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of my life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall_..

In despair I turned and saw your face
You were there, you showed me a better place
Like a friend, you taught me to feel again
Side by side,

When I fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of my life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall_..

You showed me what I could find
When I face forward and leave behind
All the fears as each new day nears_.

On the stone there is a little line
Between the dates of the life that I called mine
Though I'm gone,  I hope this thought lives on
Through the years

When we fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of our life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall_..
