Wipe away the past and start again

Wipe away the past and start again
Living life as if we’re aged only nine or ten
When we’d hardly heard of armies, parties of famous men
And the just wars were an unknown sea in a camera lens

Remembering how slow was the pace of the human race
And in between our steps the wild flowers grow
And there was time to look at one another without any haste
And to find out all you needed to know

Nowadays only the wind has time to rest
On a quiet day it settles in the empty sparrows nest
While man will climb over each other’s backs
In the race to get to the moon and back

So wipe away the past and start again
Begin without the walls that we’ve had to defend
Start as if the rain had just gone away
Start again and build a brand new day

Or soon there’ll be no time to write a song
Fall in love or learn how to belong
Or soon there’ll be no time to look at the stars
Or play children’s games or have children’s fun
