So open up your morning light, And say a little prayer for right You know that if we are to stay alive Then see the peace in every eye... Doo doo doo doo do doo do Do do doo doo doo doo dooo doo ooh She had two babies, one was six months, one was three In the war of '44... Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging When she thought it was God calling her Oh, would her son grow to know his father? I don't want to wait for our lives to be over, I want to know right now, what will it be? I don't want to wait for our lives to be over, Will it be yes or will it be... sorry? Doo doo oooh doo ooh do do ooh He showed up all wet on the rainy front step Wearing shrapnel in his skin And the war he saw lives inside him still, It's so hard to be gentle and warm The years pass by and now he has granddaughters (Repeat) You look at me from across the room You're wearing your anguish again Believe me I know the feeling It sucks you into the jaws of anger(oooooooh) So breathe a little more deeply my love All we have is this very moment And I don't want to do what his father, And his father, and his father did, I want to be here now So open up your morning light, And say a little prayer for right You know that if we are to stay alive, And see the peace in every eye... (Repeat) x2 Doo doo doo dooo oooh do dooo doo Doo doo doo dooo do doooo oooh Doo doo doo do dooo do do So open up your morning light, And say a little prayer for right You know that if we are to stay alive Then see the love in every eye...
