Will we still see the colours

When our earth goes to sleep

When the rivers stop flowing

When the salmon don’t leap?

Will we still smell the fragrance

When mother nature’s lungs stop

When the forests are gone

And desolation’s our crop?

Will we still taste the morning?

When the sun doesn’t shine

When smog is our window

Our lives coated in grime?

Will we still hear the birdsong?

When their feathers are gone

When their nests all lie broken

And they’re flying alone?

Will we still feel our heartbeat?

As we try to keep warm

Only memories for blankets

As regrets fuel the storm?

We must sense there’s still time

We can turn these things round

If we only try harder

Then some hope can be found

If we just have the courage

The belief and the heart

And we all pull together

Then at least that’s a start
