Richard, Cliff - Peace In Our Time Lyrics

Go swiftly
The flags and drums can hypnotise
When glory has faded the dream
Is worth more than the prize
A twisting turning flame
And a freedom burning bright
Knows all of the names
And all of the games
Of the yellow black and white
We've gotta have faith
To work it out
Faith and hope
Without any doubt
Give us strenght to make a start
Put a song in our hearts....

We're never gonna break down these walls
And build a prison with the stone
'Cos you and I know what love is worth
We're gonna build heaven on earth
We're running in the wheels of fortune
Turning water into wine
We're gonna take love and make it shine
We're gonna find peace in our time

Softly, softly
When there is lightening in the sky
When the rivers are rising and
Trouble rolls in on the tide
We'll keep on keeping on
'Til all the tears are dry
We'll weather the storm and
Welcome the dawn
Of tomorrow you and I
We've gotta have faith
And get it fast, faith and hope
And make it last
Give us strength
To reach the stars
Put a song in our hearts


We're raisin' the dust
It's heaven or bust
And we'll see this dream come true
We're gonna have faith....(faith)
The road will be long
But there's hope....(hope)
To carry us on
We'll have strength...(strength)
We'll never go wrong
With this song in our hearts


At the sign (sign)
Of the dove
It's gonna shine (shine)
Shine (shine)
Shine (shine)
On a wing
And a prayer
We'll be fine

    This song is more important than ever. We need peace and tranquillity. Sir Cliff hits it to the point.

    Eddie Money did a killer version of this song in 1989, may he Rest In Peace. Cliff is a legend as well.

  5. 692MOM

    There will never be peace on this earth, never be heaven on earth, I know you love Christ Cliff....but its only gonna get worse until Jesus returns. The peace in our hearts can only come from Christ!

    Amen brother Cliff...peace in our time...Psalm 121

  12. Alan Fox

    Regilion and politics are the two things you don't talk about in his world so by releasing the single cliff Richard was invited trouble through the front door.

    Siobhan Murphy

    Alan Fox you think? I've seen worse songs than this. This song sends a powerful message. It needs to be told. 20 years later it still does.

    Irene Francis

    Sorry Alan Fox, what you have written makes no sense. I wish I could understand you. Are you saying, keep quiet when everything around is falling apart and say nothing ?

  13. MsFanmail
