BORN AT A TIME

(W Duncan / R Watson / R Reid)

Born at a time when hopes ran high
Expectations floated swansdown from the sky
We were the chosen but not the few
We were the many to recreate the world anew
 
      We had such love we had such schemes
We had such faith we had such dreams
  The power to change the way ahead
  Or so we thought but maybe we were being led
 
They pinned their hopes their hopes for peace
On love and sense to slay the beast
And yes, we tried we worked and fought
But in the end the way was harder than we thought
 
Did we succeed, or did we fail
Did we lose hope through life's travails
Did we advance, progress a little way
Or did we waste our time in living for today
 
It was a time When hopes ran high
Expectations floated swansdown From the sky
We were the chosen but not the few
We were the many who would build the dreaming world anew
