Day Before We Went to War

All the pictures on the wall The sand lying on the floor
The bed upstairs still unmade
The dust float in the light The people just left
All laughter and mess
Forgetting this and that And rushing back

The front door open
The music still playing in one room Down the hall
Towels on the floor
And then it's quiet Just the bees and birds
The summer haze Of the trees
And the air Feeds it all Feeds it all

We can all feel it Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war We can all feel it

All the parasols and kids at play The sea so still and calm
Blue as the cloudless sky Just the gentle hum
Of the summer's goings on
Broken by the sudden rush Of two planes
Flying low and fast Into the sun Into the sun

We can all feel it Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you

The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war
We can all feel it

We can all feel it Like a light hand on your back
Welcoming you We can all feel it
Like a light hand on your back Welcoming you

The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war
The day before we went to war
