Joan Armatrading – In These Times lyrics

These are the times
Tears fill the back of your eyes
These are the times
The birds migrate across the skies

These are the times
What hope you had, you forget
These wicked times
You're bound to feel all sanity is lost

In these times everyone needs love
In these times do you pray to God

In these times everyone needs comfort
And would welcome a hand to hold
Compassion is the fire that burns the hurt that pains the soul
And though my eyes are so polluted
By the sight of lost desires
I can see you standing by

This is my fear
That distance will come between us
And it could mean nothing, nothing
To get from here to there

We own the world
And everything that's in it
Let our love shine
Like glistening raindrops, resting on a rose

In these times celebrate our love
In these times let's be thankful of

All the days we can spend together
And I'm happy to hold your hand
Your passion is the food that feeds the hunger in my heart
And now my eyes are clearly open
No more longing for the past
Now I have you in these times

In these times everyone needs love
In these times do you pray to God

In these times everyone needs comfort
And would welcome a hand to hold
Compassion is the fire that burns the hurt that pains the soul
And though my eyes are so polluted
By the sight of lost desires
Good to have you in these times
