Bruce Springsteen -
Remember When The Music
-----------------------------------------

remember when the music came from wooden boxes stronged with silver wire
and as we sang the words would set our hearts on fire
to believe in things and so we´d sing
remember when the music brought us all together to stand inside the ring
and as we joined hands with meeting the refrain
with dreams to live and hope to give
remember when the music was the best of what we dreamed of for our children´s time
and as we worked we sang ´cause we knew time was just a line
a gift to say give the future a way
remember when the music was a rock that we would clink to so we´d not despair
and as we sang we knew we hear an echoe in the air
and if we weren´t smiling we´d smile again
and all the times i listened and all the times i heard and all the melodies
i missed and all the magic words
all the beauty of all the voices and the choices we had damned
i hope to find we got those kinds of choices once again

speech

remember when the music was a glow on the horizon of the new born day
and as we sang the sun come up and chase the dark away
and life was good for we knew we could
remember when the music brought the night across the valley as the day went down
and as we harm melody we´d be save inside the sound
and so we´d sleep to awake with dreams and promises to keep
