Is there a time?

Woman smoking saw through a glassIs there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with your day
Is there a time for kohl and lipstick
A time for cutting hair
Is there a time for high street shopping
To find the right dress to wear
Here she comes
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown
Is there a time to run for cover
A time for kiss and tell
Is there a time for different colours
Different names you find it hard to spell
Is there a time for first communion
A time for East 17
Is there a time to turn to Mecca
Is there time to be a beauty queen
Here she comes
Beauty plays the clown
Here she comes
Surreal in her crown

“Dici che il fiume
Trova la via al mare
E come il fiume
Giungerai a me
Oltre i confini
E le terre assetate
Dici che come fiume
Come fiume…
L’amore giunger
L’amore…
E non so più pregare
E nell’amore non so più sperare
E quell’amore non so più aspettare”

Is there a time for tying ribbons
A time for Christmas trees
Is there a time for laying tables
And the night is set to freeze
_ U2 with Brian Eno (Miss Sarajevo) _
Thanks to A.
