G		      D
The red hot sun burns up the hill

    em			D
The winter's bride, the summer's king

  em		    C
I tramp these acres and I feel

am	    D
Once upon a time

G			D
And then it seemed that everything

    em			D
You saw and touched and felt was real

    em			   C
You turned the tap and you turned the wheel

am	  D
Breathing free

Now you search the open evening sky
Trace the memory in your eyes
For the prophet's hard rain and the deluge
Lie in tears around your door
Once there were trees and livestock here
A mother's love, the warnings clear
But you chose to turn away from fear
Breathing free

Now there's a faceless cross on a distant hill
A wasted voice, a silent scream
Where the lovers love and the dreamers dream
You stand and dream alone
You took your sacrifice to the gods of war
Traded your children's lives for a mess of gold
And you beat your ploughshares into swords
Breathing free

D	  G
Once in a lifetime

You live and love

Once in a lifetime

You die

Once in a moment

The sun goes down
