Dave Evans Solo – Save The Children lyrics

When I was young and went to school
We learned about the Golden Rule.
We played all day and had our fun.
We never had to duck and run. And we

Walked in two by two right through the classroom door.
Never worried who’s in the corridor.
Cause we knew we were safe and that we had our place.
But now we’re running last in the Reality Race.

Times have changed and we have to grow.
But I wonder if we’ll ever really truly know.
How to keep our children safe and keep them out of harm.
Worried bout the shooters and the smoke alarms.

So we walk into the land of gilded Make Believe.
And we close our eyes when we see them bleed.
Cause we never made it safe we never made that case.
And now we’re running last in the Reality Race.

We need to save the children now.
We must save all the children now.
Stop the talk and made a motion.
Drop the acts and self-promotion.
No more guns and no more killing now.

When I was young and went to school
We learned about the Golden Rule.
We played all day and had our fun.
We never had to duck and run. And we

So we walk into the land of gilded Make Believe.
And we close our eyes when we see them bleed.
Cause we never made it safe we never made that case.
And now we’re running last in the Reality Race.

We need to save the children now.
We must save all the children now.
Stop the talk and made a motion.
Drop the acts and self-promotion.
No more guns and no more killing now.
