Yellow Pearl
Language: English



Never met a man who said
That he was never afraid.
Never met a woman yet,
Who was always brave.
When will the time come
When we are just what we seem?
Long gone heroes who weep at night
Awakened by a dream?
And when in doubt, try to keep trying.
Better dead than a living dying.

How many children
Have there been that had to choose
And weighed in small hands
What they gain and what they lose?
When will the time come
When the children never cry?
When new is old and old is gone,
And we live before we die?
And when in doubt, try to keep trying.
Better dead than a living dying.

Try to see the mother as she sits down
all alone.
Try to see the father sitting by the phone.
Waiting for the phone call saying
everything is fine
While the people on the outside
just take their time
just take their time
just take our time.
