The Time Of Our Lives - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Dream on
Sail on the wind of a stormy sea
Wake from the sound of an age
Gone forever?
But it's all right
We'll survive
This is the time of our lives

Out on the streets and boulevards
See the way they run
A future of uncertainty
The word against the gun
Where have they gone?
Who are the ones who will help us all?
We stand or we fall


Open your eyes
We're on the ride
Who will survive?
This is the time
The time of our lives


Dream on
Follow the night
Through a darkened sky
We never wanted to be
Here forever
So we teach our ways
In the name of reality
And constantly we plant
The seeds of hatred in
The children of the world
But it's all right?


Out on the streets and boulevards
See the way they run
A future of uncertainty
The word against the gun.
Where have they gone?
We are the ones who could change it all
Divided we fall


Open your eyes
We're on the ride
Who will survive?
This is the time
The time of our lives
