As I close my eyes a dream comes to me of the wind blowing leaves
and whisper to me oh yeah

Ooh said it should've never been this way now we don't wanna go back
to the way we were the way we were

Beneath her lonely soul her heart has turned to stone because of the things
we do and we don't wanna change the things we do

Ooh said it should've never been this way now we don't wanna go back
to the way we were the way we were

    Its means that we are ruining earth, and we know it. But we don't want to change our ways. We don't want to stop runing it. They say it is wrong, but we have gone too far to stop. We are unable to stop our bad habbits. Great song!

    I believe this song has everything to do with our current environmental situations. And even though we need to change the way we live, it will never happen because people are so accustomed to how we today that going back to live as our forefather's did would be superfilous. This is my favorite song of all time and it really means a lot to me and what I hold spiritually! Great job Mato!
