Lyrics

[1]Long ago, before the time of angels without wings
Distant stars I wished upon did promise many things
I lived to see it come to pass

Heroes dreamt of yesterday, of honor to defend
Lovers, of a hundred ways the heart cannot pretend
I lived to see it come to pass
I long to hold on to the last

The winds of change suppress a smile
Plan to stay a while
Watching from the door way
Care not for all I say and do
Me—the wise old fool
Born to learn the hard way

Music made the world go round and gave me memories
True love sang it’s wistful song and brought me to my knees
The winds of change blow strong
Not knowing right from wrong
I lived to see it come to pass

The winds of change claim all
Lay waste the garden wall
I lived to see it come to pass
I long to hold on to the last

[2]Children grow and soon they know that life just comes and goes
Filled with wonders great and small and answers no one knows
I lived to see it come to pass

Righteous live and know they sin, how far they fall from grace
Wicked sin and know they live, a smile upon their face
I lived to see it come to pass
I long to hold on to the last

The winds of change suppress a smile
Plan to stay a while
Waiting at the door way
Care not for all I say and do
Me—the wise old fool
Born to learn the hard way

Years from now a still small voice may echo in your mind
Would that you remember me and like the reason why
The winds of change blow now
One shot across the bow
I lived to see it come to pass

Called by another name
I am the Winds of Change
I live to see it come to pass
I’ll be here to the very last
