Carole King

Carole King - Time Gone By

rate me

The rebel cry of desolation

To which we used to hearken

Echoes now in isolation

As the skies in fury darken

A thousand acts of desecration

Hundreds more continue

When y'know that you are all creation

You're gonna fight 'em with all that's in you

I remember time gone by

When peace and hope and dreams were high

We followed inner visions and touched the sky

Now we who still believe won't let them die

Waters dammed to overflowing

Like tears brimming over in our eyes

Sometimes it's so hard to keep on going

When promises turn to lies

Go ahead, give in to confusion

And put aside your ideals, too

Soon you'll see only illusion

Don't care who's hurt

As long as it's not you

I remember time gone by

When peace and hope and dreams were high

We followed inner visions and touched the sky

Now we who still believe won't let them die

Sometimes a leader emerges

And is followed for awhile

Doesn't matter what he encourages

As long as he's got style

Young ones conceived in a passion

Of directions we thought enlightened

Grown-up, they follow the mood in fashion

But beneath their bravado

You know they're frightened

I remember time gone by

When peace and hope and dreams were high

We followed inner visions and touched the sky

Now we who still believe won't let them die
