 Let us, you and I 
Begin counting days 
Like cents 
Before the ice gets too thin 
Losing monuments 
Of what we were about 
Here take my hand 
I am a child 
Children teach from dreams 
God and man reconciled 
        Let us try to understand 
        The beginnings of wisdom 
        True values 
        Never perish as we grow old 
        Gaining momentum 
        Of what we are to become 
        Here take my hand 
        I am a child 
        Children learn from dreams 
        God and man reconciled
I have numbered my children
Numbered my friends
Numbered my debts unpaid
Numbered the stairs men built to heaven
But only you can teach me
To count my days melting away like ice
That I may drink of wisdom from the sun
When God and man is reconciled
