Lyrics & Music by Will James

Paris 021 1274605937

He sang a tune or two in a one man band
then hopped a train to a distant and nameless land..
He sang a tune or two in a one man band
then hopped a train to a distant and nameless land;
and in a boxcar he heard someone say:
"You can't take back what you never gave away".

There are rumors of war..
there are holes in the sky.
The dead line the roads
but no one hears them cry.
There are rumors of war
there are holes in the sky.
The dead line the roads,
but no one hears them cry.

The living are throwing stones into an empty well.
Their houses are bare; -they have nothing left to sell.
The living are throwing stones -into an empty well.
Their houses are bare; they have nothing left to sell.

I hum along to a song that I know and understand
as I trudge toward that distant and nameless land;
I hum along to a song that I know and understand
as I trudge toward that distant and nameless land…
And in the darkness I hear someone say,
"You can't take back what you never gave away".
And in the darkness I hear someone say,
"You can't take back what you never gave away..".
