Even a Child - Crowded House

I want to turn on the lights
i want to keep your hopes alive
so where do i begin to help you belive again
makers of secret planes
keepers of our last remains
dream of a holy state
in a nightmare time you know i meant it well
but who was it meant to help

even a child knows you dont waste it
a promise is only given once
and there is no doubt that changes have begun
even a child knows that you cant fake it
as long as the world as the world is waking up
you are free now to recover your heart

the stories left to write
the ebb and flow of my life
to justify the end
ill do everything i can
and its a dangerous game
i heard you tell someone that you dont care
but i dont believe the message
and when you sing about love
what are you thinking of

even a child knows you dont waste it
as long as the world is waking up
and there is no doubt that changes have begun
even a child knows you dont fake it
a promise is only given once
you are free now to go wherever you want

theres nothing like waking up in some foreign town
music is a call to prayer
wailing out of the speakers in the market place
The first time

even a child
even a child knows you dont waste it
a present can always be delivered twice
you are free now to receive the gift of insight
from now on lets be open
all in time lets breathe in
am i brave ?
your so brave
am i afraid ?
no not afraid
even the child
