Cold War - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Born in a cold war
Opened up my eyes
See the bombers riding
Dark against the sky
Fly like an eagle
Carried on the wind
See our hearts are broken
So many lives are gone
Waiting for this dream to end

We're not alone
We'll live on forever
They echo the songs
Of the partisans


Don't be afraid
We're heading for glory
The fears of the past
Bring tears of today

Nothing's going to change

Cold is the winter
Chills you to the bone
Praying for the silence
Will the morning come?

Out on the border
Lost without a friend
Searching for a reason
The battle rages on
Waiting for this dream to end

We're not alone
We'll live on forever
They echo the songs
Of the partisans


Don't be afraid
We're heading for glory
The fears of the past
Bring tears of today

Nothing's going to change
