Big Country – One Great Thing lyrics

If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
I've seen too much of what fighting has done
I've seen too much anger and I've seen it far too young
And talk will come to nothing
While the shouting still goes on
But we are only singers
And too many songs are sung
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
I've seen the way of martyrs and I've seen the way of kings
I've seen the hope that love can bring
I only hope what pleases me will also pleasure you
For mine can never be the hands that make a dream come true
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
I've seen too much of what fighting has done
I've seen too much anger and I've seen it far too young
I've seen the way of martyrs and I've seen the way of kings
I've seen the hope that love can bring
I only hope what pleases me will also pleasure you
For mine can never be the hands that make a dream come true
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
If there's one great day, if there's one great height
Let it be the time for peace, let it be the time of right
If there's one great thing
To happen in my life
