Song Lyrics

I’d like to dedicate this song to those who lost their lives
In London, in the UK bombings last week… and Iraq
We want to turn our song into a prayer
And our prayer, is that we, they, we
Do not become a monster in order to defeat a monster
That’s our prayer

Is there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with the day

Is there a time for kohl
and lipstick
A time for cutting hair
Is there a time for high street shopping
To find the right clothes to wear

Here she comes, oh oh
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown

Is there a time to run for cover
A time for kiss and tell
Is there a time for different colours
Different names you find so hard to spell

Is there a time for first communion
A time for synagogue
Is there a time to turn to Mecca
A beauty queen before God

Here she comes
Beauty plays the clown
Here she comes
Surreal in her crown

Dici che il fiume
Trova la via al mare
?? come il fiume
Giungerai a me
Oltre i confini
E le terre assetate
Dici che come fiume
Come fiume…
L’amore giunger
L’amore…
E non so più pregare
E quell’amore non so più sperare
E quell’amore non so più aspettare

Is there a time for shared values
A time to turn aside
Is there a time… a time for human rights
