lifeblood: songs: lyrics: broken blossoms


i walk where once the grass was green
and mourn the lark that sings no more
what bird could sing whose eyes have seen
broken blossoms on the field of war

and as they lie there in the sun
how unimportant now it seems
just who has lost and who has won
when with them have died so many dreams

they dreamed that endless hate would end
(they dreamed that endless hate would end)
unceasing fear one day would cease
(unceasing fear one day would cease)
they dreamed that foe would turn to friend
(they dreamed that foe would turn to friend)
and eternal war would turn to peace
(eternal war would turn to peace)

but who can say how many more
will join these young and hopeful ones
in fields they've never seen before
far from fields they'll never see again

ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

words and music by tom springfield and robert anthony gray
