Children of Summer

I remember children running through sprinklers

Bodies slick and sun-kiss'd brown

Laughing slipping sliding on wet grass.

Let it last forever.

Bodies slick and sun-kiss'd brown

Innocents soaking up joy.

Let it last forever.

No worries cares or darkness.

Innocents soaking up joy

Happiness is yours, need not be earned.

No worries cares or darkness.

You are more precious than you know.

Happiness is yours, need not be earned.

When do you start to doubt this?

You are more precious than you know

Though some pain and loss will come.

When do you start to doubt this?

Forests afire. Oceans poisoned. Animals dying.

Though some pain and loss will come

How can they destroy your home?

Forests afire. Oceans poisoned. Animals dying.

Bank accounts grow and throw away your future.

How can they destroy your home?

Hold hands tight and sing your ecstatic defiance.

Bank accounts grow and throw away your future.

How can they destroy your home?

Hold hands tight and sing your ecstatic defiance.
