lyrics

The Winter wind had slowed us down some,
We still carried on.
The faces of our women round the campfire,
keep us strong.
The years we’ve been travelling now, with our
hopes and our fears,
And all the while the sound of childrens’ laughter
In our ears.
Oh the Joy! and all the tears!
As we sing out tomorrow, the songs of yesteryear.

The chemical imbalances, the synapses, the touch.
The shift from “How I love you!” to “I don’t like you much!”
So strike out in the wilderness, try and make yourself a home,
And realise when you make it, you left your heart to roam.
Oh the Joy! And all the tears!
We will always be lovers, in the songs of yesteryear.

So sing out a song, sing an old song,
If we know it we’ll all sing along.
For when tonight, it is over,
Only the song will linger on.

This process of emancipation, it’s like dancing to the sun.
Aye, maybe it’ll heal you, won’t change what’s been done.
So cast your shroud of secrecy, and for god sake Smile!
And remember who you’re singing for, will make it all worthwhile..
.. All the joy, and all the tears.
As we sing out tomorrow, the songs of yesteryear.
As we sing out tomorrow, the songs of yesteryear.
