Fifties Child - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Love was a lesson we tried to learn
There were no exams to pass or fail
Only heartbreaks, renew our faith
Life was a lesson we've tried to learn
There were no tests to pass, no license to gain
Only win or lose, renew our faith

Renew our faith, let us see
Fifties child was right to believe
Peace and love were our needs
The need to be free


War is a lesson we've had to learn
We had to learn to kill, to destroy and burn
But our spirits cry, renew our faith
Peace is a lesson we've yet to learn
A prize for all mankind who race for the gain
Of love and harmony, renew our faith


Renew our faith, let us see
Fifties child was right to believe
Peace and love were our needs
The need to be free


Renew our faith, let us see
Young and old we're right to believe
Peace and love are our needs
The need to be free
