Come take a walk with me…
Out in the sun that dances in the sky.
Walk with me till the moon comes up
And whisper long lost secrets in my ear
Tell me stories of the days before war
Before hate ate away at us
Before I lost my way in this big world…
That you and I live in…
I look around and hear the churches ring
Their cry sounded so sweet on innocent ears
But now that I'm older you tell me
You tell me stories of terrible pasts
On buildings stronger then steel
Crashing down before our eyes
Of countries held in poverty
By greedy leaders out for blood
Or underground groups
Setting out to cause the acts that make us weep
Why I ask? Why must things end so badly?
Why must the sun set?
The rainbows fade?
Our faces lost in the past.
I want you to hold me
Lift in your eyes and swirl me round
Like when I was small and you were the biggest person alive.
Make these nightmares we live in disappear
Let me hold your hand
Tell of the greats
The people who had dreams
The people who stood up in bravery
The people I call family
Because in this ancient world of ours…
I'd like to wander coast to coast
And whisper rays of hope to those who have lost theirs
I want to cast away the sins of evil
Bring in the hope we lost as children
Forget the lies we are told
And play in the ashes of the future no one wants
Walk beside the ghosts, hand-in-hand
And tell them hushed regrets
I'm so sorry
That I lost you
My perfect strangers
Who were taken in vain
For purposes you were not created for
Please, Please hear me
When I say I'm sorry
I will never forget you
Who you were
Who you are
Wherever you may be
Because to me
You're the angels I can't see
Come take a walk with me.
