Dawn Crept Away

作曲Edgar Broughton, Steve Broughton
And as the skies
As tall as height began to clear
The land that had become barren
Blossomed again
And the seas rolled back
And people came from every hill
Once more into the world
And as a heron flew across the day
The dawn discreetly crept away

The dawn crept away
Like an early birdie is
And the other of a day
Trouble toil, sunset rest
The sun shone her head
Across the rosy spangled sky
The world turn around
People live, people die
The dawn crept away
The dawn crept away
She watched like a dream
In the early morning light
And the sweet steep deep
In the hallowed holy night
The dawn crept away
The dawn crept away
The dawn crept away

I seen two people walkin' out tonight
Like lovers hand in hand
They were far from sight
One is a woman
A mother, the other a boy
One is a woman
A mother, the other a little boy
What's that red ball hanging in the sky?
Mamma I don't like it
Am I gonna die, die, die
No more keeping the flying summer wings up in the sky
Will we see tomorrow morning
If tonight we die

Mamma, mamma
Too long have I asked the questions
And the questions have been questioned
Mamma lookin' worried
Uneasy, at a loss for words
Lost for words
Lost for words
Lost for words
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Oh shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up

Mamma, mamma, why do you look at me that way?
I have some words that I wish to say
Mamma
Do you hear them
Do you hear the coming of the line
Do you feel them
Do you feel them walking across your mind

Mamma, what's that red ball
What's that, what's that red ball

Son! This is your father's world....
This is your daddy's world
This is your daddy's world

Daddy, built it, daddy built it, daddy built it
Daddy, bought it, daddy tried to pull it back

But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
But the string broke
Who'll live, who'll die, who'll weep, who'll cry
You or I
Which is mine

Heavy, heavy, heavy water, heavy water
Mothers get your daughters
Heavy rain, heavy rain
Heavy rain, heavy rain
Heavy rain, heavy rain
Heavy rain, heavy rain
Get your sons back, get your sons back
Again
At that moment, a beach photographer
Seizing the chance to work in the off season
Comes along to the beach
Sees the woman and a child
And the water rolling, endlessly, endlessly
Ao, ao water
God! saying "Mamma"
Would you like a picture, would you like
A photograph, picture, photograph, picture

No! I've gotta a little boy
"Look son!"
"A boy?"
"My own, my own boy" come on lady
Ah then come on lady, only 5 dollars
Lady, only 5 dollars, 3 dollars picture, way to go
Picture, photograph
But I've got a little boy
Now listen, you see that red ball in the sky
Red ball, red ball, red ball, red ball
What do you think that could be?
Bee, be, be, be
And the little boy starts crying
As though, he know only too well

He has the intuition of an innocent child
Child, child
At that point the photographer says
"Mamma" Take a picture, take a photograph...
Before your baby fly away, away, away
She watched like a dream
In the early morning lights
And the sweet sleep deep
In the hallowed, holy night

Thousands of years pass on
And again a couple stand on the beach
The man looks at his girl
And the sun, and the sun
The girl looks into the eyes of the man
Soon we will have a baby boy, all of our own
And with a love in his eyes, like the love
One knows of coming home
He speaks thus...
"Woman of mine, you see the sea rolling endlessly
See and look, and you shall see
That many years have passed us by
Have we learnt but one thing in our lives?"

Away, away, away, away
Cold the winds blow
