Mirrors And Changes
Fragments of another sunset
Ashes of another dawn
Drowned in time’s immortal ocean
All too soon, we may be gone

This old Earth has seen a lot of living
This old Earth, the stories she could tell
This old Earth is finished with the giving
This old Earth we knew so well

Now the playground stands deserted
In the yellow afternoon
And the cotton candy children
Have all gone home too soon

And the tree of knowledge trembles
For the fruit was ours before
Will we be like Eden’s lovers
Driven from the garden’s door?

So what can it take from nature
And what must it take from man
For the future generation
To save the sky, the sea, the land?

This old Earth has seen a lot of living
This old Earth, the stories she could tell
This old Earth is finished with the giving
This old Earth we used so well

So ask your child what really matters
And ask your friend what he will do
And ask the leaders you’ve elected
But the answer lies with you

This old Earth has seen a lot of living
This old Earth we’ve used from end to end
Now it’s time for mankind to start giving
This old Earth could use a friend

Purtroppo su YouTube ho trovato solo una cover, bella ma mal registrata, molto disturbata (non so nemmeno perchè qualcuno posti in Rete simili contributi)...
