WE ARE THE ONES (WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR) – THE LOVERS

Wearetheones(lovers)

There isn’t a song
that hasn’t been sung.
There are no new words
in any old tongue
that haven’t been uttered, save the one
of world unity
from sea to shining sea.
There isn’t a world
in ever-loving space
that isn’t on edge
that doesn’t a-wait
for that shiny blue jewel
in the white milky way
to rise from the dust
and finally say:

We are the ones,
we are the ones,
we are the ones
we’ve been waiting for. (repeat)

Don’t look in back, no,
stand your ground.
The green light has
surely already been found.
Ain’t no one deprived,
so don’t be depraved.
The time to arrive
was yesterday
and it’s really very true,
hear me when I say
for the glory evolution
it’s never too late,
though the story is old
it’s relevant see
that the answer to deaths riddle is to be.

(Chorus)

And brother the future
is what you make of the past.
There is no other time
sister to shine shine shine.
Ooh like the rising moon,
or a flower that blooms.
We’re hatching an egg
let’s make it today.
(Chorus)
