    In your youth you fall in love,

    Then you're sent away to war,

    never to return to see,

    the one who loves you anymore.

    Question
    The Moody Blues (written by Justin Hayward)



    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door
    With a thousand million questions
    About hate and death and war?
    'Cos when we stop and look around us,
    There is nothing that we need,
    In a world of persecution
    That is burning in its greed.

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door
    Because the truth is hard to swallow
    That's what the war of love is for

    It's not the way that you say it
    When you do those things to me
    It's more the way that you mean it
    When you tell me what will be

    And when you stop and think about it
    You won't believe it's true
    That all the love you've been giving
    Has all been meant for you.

    I'm looking for someone to change my life,
    I'm looking for a miracle in my life
    And if you could see what it's done to me,
    To lose the love I knew
    Could safely lead me through.

    Between the silence of the mountains,
    And the crashing of the sea,
    There lies a land I once lived in,
    And she's waiting there for me,
    But in the grey of the morning,
    My mind becomes confused,
    Between the dead and the sleeping,
    And the road that I must choose.

    I'm looking for someone to change my life,
    I'm looking for a miracle in my life
    And if you could see what it's done to me,
    To lose the love I knew,
    Could safely lead me to
    The land that I once knew,
    To learn as we grow old
    The secrets of our soul.

    It's not the way that you say it
    When you do those things to me
    It's more the way you really mean it
    When you tell me what will be

    Why do we never get an answer
    When we're knocking at the door
    With a thousand million questions
    About hate and death and war?
    'Cos when we stop and look around us,
    There is nothing that we need,
    In a world of persecution
    That is burning in its greed.

    This yahoo site contains a cornucopia of lyric oriented sites:

    Eve Of Destruction
    Barry McGuire

    The eastern world it is explodin',
    Violence flarin', bullets loadin',
    You're old enough to kill but not for votin',
    You don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',
    And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',
    But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Don't you understand, what I'm trying to say?
    Can't you see the fear that I'm feeling today?
    If the button is pushed, there's no running away,
    There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave,
    Take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy,
    But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
    I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
    I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,
    Handful of Senators don't pass legislation,
    And marches alone can't bring integration,
    When human respect is disintegratin',
    This whole crazy world is just too frustratin',
    And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Think of all the hate there is in Red China!
    Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
    Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
    But when your return, it's the same old place,
    The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace,
    You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,
    Hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace,
    And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
