"Intro" as written by Kendred Smith, M. Mcdermon and R. Wilson....
Here are children whirling, laughing,
They don't know they should be scared.
Give me that hope, give me time to love
High above the glowing city.
Planes make circles humming madly
Please keep me safe
Give me time to love.
All I can do, all I can say.
I'll keep you safely in my arms and close your ears to not hear harm,
I'll sing to you.

    General CommentThis song seems dark in a way...

    Little children whirling, laughing
    They don't know they should be scared
    Give me that hope
    Give me time to love

    High above the glowing city
    Planes makes circles humming merrily
    Please keep me safe
    Give me time to love

    All I can do
    All I can say
    i'll keep you safely in my arms
    and close your ears
    to not hear harm
    i'll sing to you.

    General Commentdropbeatsnob, I agree with you that it sounds dark, almost like she knows what they should be afraid of. But it could also be that the children are so naiive that they don't know that the world is actually a scary place and maybe she's just speaking of that innocence that children have and she's wishing she could have that same hope.

    General CommentIt almost sounds like it's during a war.
    She's scared, but she doesn't want to tell the kids that they're in danger.

    General CommentI think that all the children are having fun, as usual, but they aren't aware of the...?

    It could be like about how there was an unexpected attack [they mentioned planes] like Pearl Harbor.

    General Commentthis reminds me of something like the world war I bombings, with planes humming madly above a big city everyone was unaware and she is holding the childs ears shut and sinigng to him because of the deafining sounds that came.

    General CommentYes, definitely dark... I'm almost maybe halfway agreeing with the war theories, but since I've got nothing else to offer, I'll keep my mouth shut.

    General CommentI was thinking it was about war, too. It's just as they lyrics say--she longs for the blissfull inncence of youth, and makes a desparate attempt to preserve that in the aforementioned children.

    General CommentPersonally. I think this is one of the most beautiful things i've ever heard.
    maybe it's just the words and the situation i'm in. but wow. I love it.
