The Christians – What’s In A Word – 1992

Paroles

Oh yes, it’s hard, it’s getting harder
To turn the cheek or just walk away
When all I see is degradation day after day
(Day after day after day after day after day)I wanna fight, my hands are tied
My weapons are pitiful
And all that’s left, one troubled mind
One timid voice
Such a desperate noiseMore than you imagine
(What’s in a word) More than I can say
(Once in a while) You can hear such sweet sounds
Freedom’s singing in your head, in your headAnd while I slide down into darkness
You stand so proud, so proud in the light
Oh, help me, please, I think I’m falling
Between wrong and rightWhy give me strength then speak at length
Of wisdom and tenderness (Tenderness)
So much to learn, so much to lose
I’ve asked it before, oh, tell me once moreMore than you imagine
(What’s in a word) More than I can say
(Once in a while) You can hear such sweet sounds
Chimes of freedom in your headYes, I have heard there’s a new age dawning
And I have heard that the die is cast
I know the word can be « liberation »
For a people free at last, free at lastSome give a damn, some give their lives
Why can’t we give peace a chance (Give peace a chance)
Put down that gun, a battle won without even a shot
Oh, a dreamer I’m notMore than you imagine
(What’s in a word) More than I can say
(Once in a while) You can hear such sweet sounds
Freedom’s singing in your headYes, I have heard there’s a new age dawning
And I have heard that the die is cast
I know the word can be « liberation »
For a people, free at lastWhat’s in a word, woh oh
(What’s in a word)
(What’s in a word, liberation)
I can hear such sweet sound singing in you head
Free at last
