Songtekst

IN DAYS TO COME

I heard him sing when I was young
Imagine if you can
Imagine if the world was one
A brotherhood of man
I have a dream I heard him say
A dream in black and white
I have a dream
(That all men are created equal)
A dream of civil right

In days to come
We'll see the sun as more than just a star
In days to come we'll be as one
No matter where we are

I saw the words written on a wall
For the times, they are a changin'
And then he told me the answer
For the answer is blowing in the wind
I saw a picture in the sky tonight
Men walking on the moon
They didn't know if it was wrong or right
It happened all too soon

In days to come
We'll see the sun as more than just a star
In days to come we'll be as one
No matter where we are

I heard him sing when I was young
Imagine if you can
Imagine all the people
A brotherhood of man

In days to come
We'll see the sun as more than just a star
In days to come we'll be as one
No matter where we are

In days to come
We'll see the sun as more than just a star
In days to come we'll be as one
No matter where we are

In days to come
In days to come
We'll see the sun
In days to come
In days to come
We'll see the sun as more than just a star
In days to come
We'll be as one
No matter where we are
In days to come


CHAIN REACTION

One shot in a revolution
One drop from a poison pen
One fruit too small and bitter
One tree too proud to bend
One man to start the trouble
One kiss to seal your fate
I got a fever, a fever in my soul
No I don't want to die
Before I get old
It took some time just to bring me here
Nobody's gonna put me down
Do I make myself clear

I've got trouble, trouble in my life
And I've been living
On the edge of a knife
But I don't intend to let you down
I'm gonna give you love
Before I hit the ground

One cruel and callous lover
One blow below the belt
One chance without another
One heart too cool to melt
One kid that needs some action
One link in a chain reaction
