Lyrics
Once a day seemed so endless
But that was very long ago
So much time has been wasted
And those days are turning to evening
??? (Got some federo?)
Better forget it, the wine will flow

Many chances were given
Some were taken, some were not
Blaming misunderstanding
For the opportunities lost
But they are soon forgotten
Light up a candle but it's blowin' hard

Try to reason
Why the fears are failing
Learn the lesson
Loosing every gain

You people who understand
Please hold out a helping hand
To people who can't find their way
Won't you treat them like a brother

Maybe some day
There'll be some solution
Though it may well
Need a revolution

Then there will be no one to blame
??? (Just like a hurricane?)
It's easy to see that we
May learn to love one another

Spend some time with your loved ones
Let your troubles melt away
There's a time and a place for everything
So try to relax
And let your mind run free
Live every moment and be glad you laugh
