Don't Cease Your Singing

I see you worried in the morning as you’re waking to the dawn

And we go swinging that old hammer day by day

The picket signs get heavy and that fires starts to fade

All the words that once were strong now feel cliché

 

But darling, darling, I think I’ve found my way

I keep losing it each time that I sleep

And the words that I hear echo down through the years

And they come out in a ragged melody

And I can hear them every time that you sing

 

So darling don’t cease your singing

Darling don’t shut your mouth

Cause its fire I swear you’re breathing

It’s a cold, cold world and it’s waiting for you to shout

 

And all that fear won’t hold you down

Fill up your lungs and hear the sound

There’s a stillness on the wind

A new day is coming in

There’s freedom of those streets tonight

 

So darling don’t cease your singing

Darling don’t shut your mouth

Cause its fire I swear you’re breathing

It’s a cold, cold world and it’s waiting for you to shout

 

But every now and then

When I get so tired

I keep listening for the sound of drums

It’s a longing that drags us forward

There’s a brand new world to come
