I grew up in the sixties when the world was sure to end The young were born to teach peace again Till brotherhood went up in smoke or in someone’s veins We expanded our minds and went insane Then I opened my spirit to wisdom and god Buddha, Zen or Christ who paid the bail When I didn’t reach peace I left the pilgrimage for cash The prophets mostly ended up in jail I’ve spent my life on ideals Now I’ll settle for what’s real I feel the need to feel, something, anything that’s real Women finally found their place in the human race No commitments, I heard a higher call But free love was expensive, the damage extensive Did these empty arms gain anything at all? Anything at all? I’ve spent my life on ideals At last I’ve found what is real I still feel the need to feel Something real, anything that’s real For me, it is knowing You Jesus Though I couldn’t see the truth back when You’re my reality You’ve been closer to me than any friend, Your love never ends Real love knows no end.
