about

Time

I see the faces in my dreams,
but cannot remember the names.

I see the names upon a wall,
but cannot remember the faces.

I see the map,
but cannot remember the places.

Has time robbed me of my memories,
or spared me from the horrors of them.

lyrics

STOP REMEMBERING

Intro - Somebody must know
Somebody must know
Somebody must know
Somebody must know

1 - Early in the morning
I still hear the planes
With the sound of engines
Like the falling rain
I can close my ears
I can close my eyes
But I can’t stop remembering.

2 - Oh, the things I did
Were no worse than what I saw
And there’s no one to account to
When you stand outside the law
When you’re halfway ‘round the world
In the valley of the dead
It gets into your heart.

3 - Someone in Washington
Or in Saigon
Somebody must know
What’s going on
Someone who will never stand
Under the stinking sun
That you can’t see for the fires.


Cho - Hey, hey hey…

4 - Early in the morning
I still hear the planes
With their deadly cargo
Falling like the rain
I can close my ears
I can close my eyes
But I can’t stop remembering.

Cho - Hey, hey, hey…

End - Somebody must know
Somebody must know
Somebody must know
Somebody must know
