It is in our nature to travel into our past, hoping thereby to illuminate the darkness that bedevils the present. – Farley Mowat


It should come as no surprise
We didn’t even notice
That your tired eyes
Saw the explosion

Love like a hurricane
Ripped in all directions
Love like a hand grenade
Turned into a weapon

Oh child you were never meant to know (repeat)

Now it comes as a surprise
How could you be so selfish?
Leave us all behind
Desperate to be noticed

Love like whipping wave
Pulled you from our clutches
Love like a hurricane
Left nothing but destruction

Oh child you were never meant to know (repeat)
