  • We are a rock revolving
    Around a golden sun
    We are a billion children rolled into one
    So when I hear about the hole in the sky
    Saltwater wells in my eyes

    We climb the highest mountain
    We'll make the desert bloom
    We're so ingenious we can walk the moon
    But when I hear of how the forest have died
    Saltwater wells in my eyes

    I have lived for love
    But now that's not enough
    For the world I love is dying And now I'm crying
    And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
    As friends we're out of time
    And it's slowly passing by ....right before our eyes


    We light the deepest ocean
    Send photographs of Mars
    We're so enchanted my how clever we are
    Why should one baby feel so hungry she cries
    Saltwater wells in my eyes

    I have lived for love
    But now that's not enough
    For the world I love is dying And now I'm crying
    And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
    As friends we're out of time
    And it's slowly passing by ....right before our eyes

    We are a rock revolving
    Around a golden sun
    We are a billion children rolled into one
    What will I think of me the day that I die
    Saltwater wells in my eyes
    Saltwater wells in my eyes Writer/s: Julian Lennon, Leslie Ann Spiro, Mark Spiro
