IMMORTALS

 

Immortals – words and music David Ireland

 

 

If World War Three is on the way there’s nowhere we can hide

La la las and pillow dark won’t help to stem the tide

So we try cling to something that nothing bad can change

That we lived our little lifetimes through a bright and golden age

 

 

And love, love – love will hear my beating heart

 

We are like marble

We are like granite

We are like air

Like the sphere of a planet

Like the arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky

We are immortal and immortals never die.

 

 

And in this last cold day of winter at the keening of the knives

I give thanks to love and nature for keeping us alive

I don’t know where we’re headed before my soul takes flight

So let’s smash the walls of darkness down and step into the light

 

 

And love, love – love will hear our beating hearts

 

 

We are like diamonds

The core of the sun

Like the stars in the heavens

We are second to none

Like the arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky

We are immortal and immortals never die.

 

And love, love – love will heal our broken hearts
