All the World Has Gone By

Joan Baez
Language: English



All the world has gone by
All the winds have gone by
Now you and I are going by
For hope is the flower of childhood
And memories sister to silence
And tears are the anguish of truth
For children are choirs of starlight
And petals are names by your bedside
And dream are the murmurs of yesterday's rose

All the world has gone by
All the winds have gone by
Now you and I are going by
For fear is the masking of reason
And freedom is false without honor
And peace is the flame we hold in our hands
For men are the leaves on the willow
And love is the whispering wind
And the gardens we share are never alone

All the world has gone by
All the winds have gone by
Now you and I are going by
All the world has gone by
All the winds have gone by
Now you and I have gone by
