lyrics

HOW THE PAST WAS WON

Chords…words…

The people who love me and make me belong
The gasoline my engine runs on
What I can do is answer your love with a song

A simple song to keep the faith strong
A mantra to which we can all hum
To celebrate we don’t have to die on our own

I play some chords
Utter words
Try to sound like lively birds
I thank you all and sing this song
About how the past was won

Yeah I really really love the way you all care
It’s soothing my mind
It takes me there were
I’m longing to be
And ought to live in harmony

Loving, breathing, growing
Knowing without knowing
Hovering, heating, glowing
Going without going

A simple tune to simplify life
A day-to-day tool that can help us survive
The fear and the fury
That sometimes cut like a knife
I play some chords
Utter words
Try to sound like lively birds
I thank you all and sing this song
About how the past was won
So here I go
And I don’t know
But tomorrow it will show
I love you all
