Living With War – Neil Young

I’m living with war everyday
I’m living with war in my heart everyday
I’m living with war right now

And when the dawn breaks I see my fellow man
And on the flat-screen we kill and we’re killed again
And when the night falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

I join the multitudes
I raise my hand in peace
I never bow to the laws of the thought police
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
To never kill again

I’m living with war in my heart
I’m living with war in my heart in my mind
I’m living with war right now

Don’t take no tidal wave
Don’t take no mass grave
Don’t take no smokin’ gun
To show how the west was won
But when the curtain falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

In the crowded streets
In the big hotels
In the mosques and the doors of the old museum
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
Try to remember peace

The rocket’s red glare
Bombs bursting in air
Give proof through the night,
That our flag is still there

I’m living with war everyday
I’m living with war in my heart everyday
I’m living with wat right now

Distant Camera – Neil Young

The flash of a distant camera
reconnecting
thoughts and actions,
Fragments of our missing dreams,
Pieces from here and there
fall in place along the line,
Disappearing between you and me.

Life is changing everywhere I go,
New things and old both disappear.
If life is a photograph,
Fading in the mirror….

All I want is a song of love,
Song of love to sing for you.
All I need is this song of love,
To sing for you.

On the floor where daylight dances
With the ones
that missed their chances,
When they couldn’t let it show,
Lies the land of sweet surrender,
Like a dream
it might have ended there,
but we didn’t even know.

Now forever we will live as one,
Floating in love’s atmosphere.
If love is a piece of dust,
Shining in the sun…

All I want is a song of love,
Song of love to sing for you.
All I need is this song of love,
To sing for you.

Song of love…
Song of love…

Buffalo Springfield Again – Neil Young

Used to play
in a rock ‘n’ roll band,
But they broke up.
We were young and we were wild,
It ate us up.
Now I’m not saying
who was right or wrong.

Looking out on a big green lawn,
Girls and boys
Playing in the afternoon sun,
Life’s a joy
I heard an old song
playing on the radio.

Buffalo Springfield again.

I’d like to see those guys again,
And give it a shot.
Maybe now we can show the world,
What we’ve got.
But I’d just like to play
for the fun we had.

Buffalo Springfield again.
Buffalo Springfield again.

Human Highway – Neil Young

I come down
from the misty mountain
I got lost
on the human highway
Take my head
refreshing fountain
Take my eyes
from what they’ve seen.
Take my head
and change my mind
How could people
get so unkind.

I come down
from the crooked mansion
I went lookin’
for the D.J.’s daughter
Since that day
I heard it mentioned
That my name is on the line.
Now, my name is on the line
How could people
get so unkind.

Now, my name is on the line
How could people
get so unkind.

I come down
from the misty mountain
I got lost
on the human highway
Take my head
refreshing fountain
Take my eyes
from what they’ve seen.
Take my head
and change my mind
How could people
get so unkind.
