I was walking one day through the big lights
wondering when the world became so tired
Bottles of vodka flashed while a coca cola sign shone like moonlight
and I wondered when the world became so wired
Even the clearing of the streets was all tiled
and in the corner stood a tree in a cage
And in the screen on the side of skyscraper stood a war child
nestled in amongst the stocks, the shares and the sports scores of the day

I thought "don't you leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done, if you hide away"
eyyyy

I was travelling one day to find a small town
For I'd heard it was far enough away
Arrived late in the night and there was no sound
I looked forward to the breaking of the day
With the sunrise I headed for the ocean
For I where I find the cleanest air to breathe
Every road down a factory had stolen
And the smoke billowed out and blocked the sea

I thought "don't you leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done, if you hide away"
I thought "don't you leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done, if you hide away"

eyyyy
eyyyy
eyyyy

And I was travelling one day down in Mexico
In towns where people purely work to eat
There's a shine in the eyes of those that let go
And that shine was like a song it sang to me

It said "don't you leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done, if you hide away"
And I thought "don't you leave your life too long,
it's gone before it's done, if you hide away"
Heyyyy.
