Lyrics

I was walking one day through the big lights wondering when the world became so tired.
Bottles of vodka flashed as the Coca-Cola sign shone like moonlight and I wondered
when the world beame so wired. Even the clearing of the streets, it was all tiled and in the corner stood a tree in a cage. And in the screen on the side of a skyscrpaer stood a war child nestled in amongts the stocks, the shares and the sports scores of the day.

I thought, don't leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done if you hide away.

I was travelling one day to find a small town, for I'd hear that it was far enough away.
Arrived late in the night and there was no sound. I looked forward to the breaking of the day.
With the sunrise I headed for the ocean, for its where I find the cleanest air to brewath.
Every road down a factory had stolen and the smoke it billowed out and blocked the sea.

I thought, don't leave your life too long,
it's gone before its done if you hide away.
I thought, don't leave your life too long,
it's gone before its done if you hide away.

I was travelling one day down in Mexico,
in towns where peoiploe purely work to eat.
There's a shine in the eyes of those that let go,
and that shine was like a song that sang to me.

It said, don't leave your life too long,
it's gone before its done if you hide away.
I thought, don't leave your life too long,
it's gone before its done if you hide away.
