Out With the Old (lyrics)

William Genske, a man I have enormous love and respect for, guided the evolution of this song.

How that happened…

Look at me, Suzy-girl, still miss you so. 

But, though you’re gone, I stay strong, and live in hope

Soon this war is gonna end like they said it will

When the enemies of freedom are finally killed

Do you recall the laughs we all had when you’d say to me

Power craves yet more power, Just wait – you’ll see.” 

You’d wag your finger and I’d pinch your bum

With a wink and a hug – ah, we did have our fun.

. 

The world’s different now – quieter, somehow.

Still, they’re right, sad thoughts help no-one, now.

.

Went to see Tommy’s wall, it’s not far from here

Near that park and the pub where I bought his first beer.

That bright, shiny name among the thousands there

I could swear, Suzy-love, I could feel him near.

.

Funny how we don’t see how things just change

A camera here a new law there is not so strange

A bit of freedom surrendered is a fair exchange

To protect and defend our old ‘home range’.

.

You’d put your latest book down with that cute little frown.

And ask: why do we take this lying down?

You said you were tired of being fed all those lies

And sulked for days when I rolled my eyes

(Fade)

Then Tommy was gone, and your eyes lost their song

Like the ground zero blast of a silent bomb

You were always the one with a spirit so free

And awake so early – so long before me.

end.

.

Could this be the voice of any of us in the future. Where are we headed?
