HOW LONG

Walking alone on a sunless day
The bitter wind's strong
I can't turn away

Secure in the fields
Only yesterday
The harvest's gone wrong
A new compassion play

Watching the scenes
Feels like dying

Hard to believe
We've so lost our way

I needed to you to be
Where you needed me to be

So many times
So many years

But how can we deal
With a world gone surreal

So many lives
So many tears

How long...

Looking around - not alone anymore
A gathering sound
Grows by the score

Watching the scene
There's reason for smiling

Start to believe
We're finding the way

But the world we conceive
Can be easily deceived

So many times
So many years

If you question what it's for
Just remember the score

So many lives
So many tears

How long...

One world asleep
Threatened by fire

One song of peace
A fragile refrain
