Def Leppard – Overture lyrics

And with this message that I bring to you
A beacon of light to see you through
For time is on our side
And a holy man does say to me
To alway be blind and never to see
It's not the way he planned it oh no

The time has come to gather up your thoughts
For you have said your peace
The lords of light will change this land
From famine to feast
The buildings that once stood so tall have crumbled to the ground
The silver warriors who came in force are nowhere to be found

Time is the essence the priests do say
To restore your faith in man
For the job you do and the role you play
Will help rebuild this land
Through empty streets and dusty fields we'll fight for what we need
Protected by our swords and shields we can replant the seed

The roads ahead are long and winding on which the bandits thrive
But we have the power of finding illusion to keep us alive
So through the valleys and over the hills we'll march and sing in rhyme
We'll fight until we lose our will for our essence is our time

The sun, the moon, the darkened sky
The morning dew reflecting in my eye
The rising mist, the dampened earth
Are just reminders of what's life worth

And with this message that I bring to you
The morning dew reflecting in my eye
The rising mist, the dampened earth
Are just reminders of what's life worth

And with this message that I bring to you
A beacon of light to see you through
For time is on our side
For time is the essence
