Shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
We shine on you and me tonight,
Way across the universe, burning like a fire in the night

I was looking at a photograph,
Taken in a garden long before the war,
And out on the lawn,
There were old men and dogs and little children,
All of them gone forever;

There were people by the waterside,
Standing in the same place where I am today,
Nothing has changed, but you know,
That time is moving like a river,
