Level 42 - Children say



Tekst piosenki:


  
   I keep to myself
  what I might share with others
  but they don't seem to understand
  I open my mouth
  to rediscover
  that I don't have the words at my command
  holding out
  for a world so much better
  but I'm a stranger in a stranger's land
  all my friends have sold out
  couldn't handle the pressure
  counting their blessings trying to salvage what they can
  
  Children say - children say
  we open our minds as one
  but one more day - slips away
  why don't the dreams of the young never come to be
  
  When I overhear
  my parents conversations
  well I'm struck by the things they say
  it seems they traded the years
  for mere complications
  who ever thought it could end this way
  they close the door
  but they can't lock it
  'cause something of their childhood remains
  and they've felt it before
  when the man in their pocket
  counted the cost of their material gains
  
  Children say - come what may
  be strong for the friends you've known
  but one fine day - (not) far away
  will we remember the love we used to own
  Children say - children say
  we open our minds as one
  as one more day slips away
  why don't the dreams of the young never come to be
  
  Well you knew what I was saying
  but did you know what it meant
  when you saw that look in my eye
  did you know it was heaven sent
  was it all a waking dream
  all that time we must have spent
  well I guess it must have been
  somehow that feeling came and went
  
  Children say - come what may
  be strong for the friends you've known
  but one fine day - (not) far away
  will we remember the love we used to own
  Children say - children say
  we open our minds as one
  as one more day - slips away
  why don't the dreams of the young never come to be
  Children say - children say
  we thought it would never go
  as one more day - slips away
  who ever thought we could be so lonely
