Earthly Peace

When I was just a boy

you said peace will come

and reign a long time

how many more

must die before

we pretend no more

 

Yes, we do

pretend that

all's well

in the garden

but peace on earth

seems far away

further than ever

 

Every mother cries

like no man can cry

for peace on earth 

 

Now I am getting old

I know as wisdom tells me

that peace on earth will come

when peace on earth will come

and peace on earth will come

when peace on earth will be.
