I cannot bathe you in a river gone black
I cannot hold you in a poison rain
If I can't see you through the air that we breathe
What will love in the future be?

I wanna watch my children laugh as they run
I wanna hold their children on my knee
And tell them stories of a vanishing sun
Of how it used to be

In my lover's life I want to share
I want to see the world now through her eyes
And about everything she sees, I care
The time has come to rise

I cannot bathe you in a river gone black
I cannot hold you in a poison rain
If I can't see you through the air that we breathe
What will love in the future be?
Will we make it a different story?
Is there love in the future for you and me?

We're looking for answers in outer space
When will we discover the earth is a sacred place?

Chorus
