Barclay James Harvest - Fifties Child Lyrics




Love was a lesson we tried to learn
There were no exams to pass or fail
Only heartbreaks, renew our faith
Life was a lesson we've tried to learn
There were no tests to pass, no license to gain
Only win or lose, renew our faith

Renew our faith, let us see
Fifties child was right to believe
Peace and love were our needs
The need to be free

War is a lesson we've had to learn
We had to learn to kill, to destroy and burn
But our spirits cry, renew our faith
Peace is a lesson we've yet to learn
A prize for all mankind who race for the gain
Of love and harmony, renew our faith

Renew our faith, let us see
Fifties child was right to believe
Peace and love were our needs
The need to be free

Renew our faith, let us see
Young and old we're right to believe
Peace and love are our needs
The need to be free

    Opening song from their 2018 tour. Classic John Lees song. Beautiful intro, wonderful harmonies and a melody to die for. Lyrically one of his best

    The lesson we have to learn is: "Like an actor on a movie screen, Living out someone else`s dream.
    Living out a total misconception. Reality, a false perception. It`s such a wasted life. Without any conclusion. Days drift into days. People so balssè.
    Everything`s a clichè. Yes it is. Just an illusion".

  12. Pete B

    Still the BEST song of all time.....  Looking forward to the concert in Milton Keynes in Sep 15

  13. Elise pollydee

    Realmente se necesitaba que alguien subiera este tema con buen sonido, porque el único video de esta canción que había hasta ahora sonaba horrible.
