Do you remember when it was simple?
Oh when we were children, we were children.
How I long for the time.
Oh when it was simple, it was simple.

I remember my mother holding your mother.
Asking if there was anything she could do.
And they cried and cried and cried.
All through the days and nights.
I’d never known that life could be so cruel.
There were crowds of people in your house.
But there all gone.
And now the house is empty with you.

I remember waking up in my bed that next morning.
I’d almost forgotten everything had changed.
And we prayed to God that you were safe.
But couldn’t help to think somehow.
He cheated you from us.

Do you remember when it was simple?
Oh when we were children, we were children.
How I long for the time.
Oh when it was simple, it was simple.

Sun here it comes, the race is run.
Sun here it comes, the race is won.
Sun here it comes, the race is run.
