Song Lyrics

We’d like to dedicate this next song to those
Who lost their lives in London last week
And who are maimed and injured today
And we would like to turn our song into a prayer
The prayer is that we don’t become a monster
In order to defeat a monster
That’s our prayer tonight

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 your 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 colors
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
Beauty queen before God

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

Dici che il fiume trova la via la mare (you say that the river finds its way to the sea)
Che come il fiume giungerai a me (that like the river you will come to me)
Oltre i confini e le terre assetate (beyond the borders and the thirsty lands)
Dici che come il fiume (you say that like the river)
Come il fiume (like the river)
L’amore giungerà (love will come)
L’amore (love)
E non so più pregare (and I’m no longer able to pray)
E quell’amore non so più sperare (and I’m no longer able to hope in that love)
E quell’amore non so più aspettare (and I’m no longer able to wait for that love)

Is there a time for changing values
Is there a time to wear a blind
Is there a time for keeping your mouth shut
Is this the time for human rights
