The world goes to war
But who is it for?
Can we sleep in our beds at night?
And remember the pain
And not want to regain
When cathedrals were white

You know I still think of you
And all we went through
But the years have now faded the light
Is your love still the same
As it was on that day
When cathedrals were white?

All those onward Christian soldiers
Fighting onward Christian wars
Are you surprised when you discover
Just what they're fighting for?

We run through the rain
And we get through the pain
And we teach all our kids wrong from right
But can we ever say
That we love like the day
When cathedrals were white?

All those leaders and cheaters
Disguise their deeds with a smile
So nonchalant, as they turn to tell you
All your thoughts are on file

And who is to blame
That we've come to this day
When no one remembers what it was like?
Back when honesty reigned
When we loved not for gain,
When cathedrals were white?

When cathedrals were white
