02. Beautiful Broken World

Warren Barfield
by Warren Barfield



 

Wonderfully arrayed on a bright Autumn day
The leaves sets the trees ablaze
I’m sitting here beneath
This decaying canopy
Sunlight sifting through the shade
It won’t be long
Until they’re gone away
That’s the price we pay

[CHORUS]:
In this beautiful broken world
We laugh and then we cry
There’s a wonderful pain and joy
In death and in life yeah yeah (yeah this is life)
Oh, we are living in this beautiful broken world
Yeah yeah yeah…
God bless the day
When little Suzy came
Born on a morning in May
And no one knows why time hurries by
And youth makes room for age
I cherish those years
That she was here with us
We should laugh and love

[BRIDGE]:
Will the day still be as sweet
If it had no end
If it never knew an enemy
Could you understand
The word of a friend
