The Age of Miracles - Karen Thompson Walker

To the tune of Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks:

 

Farewell, so long, the world we knew

To old traditions we bid sad adieu.

Forever died, and now we grieve.

For the Earth we are bereaved

All those lies that we believed.

 

Goodbye true love, for you I mourn

i often wish that we could be reborn.

Know the freedom of a child

Risk it all and just run wild.

We must face what we defiled.

 

Nights were calm, days were bright

Till we waged war with the light.

Now we wait in the gloom

With a growing sense of doom.

 

We were not frightened of the dark

Though experts thought the danger seemed so stark

They tried to tell us we were wrong

But we sang a different song

We were fooled for far too long.

 

My darling Seth, our sun has set

Ours was a love that I will not forget.

How I long for yesterday

Why'd you have to go away?

Miss you more than I can say.

 

Nights were calm, days were bright

Till we waged war with the light.

Now we wait in the gloom

With a growing sense of doom.
