  • Over these hills and valleys that I've seen as a young boy
    I found shelter in my solitude, I found safety in the sea
    And all these country lanes would twist and turn
    Young eyes would find a flicker in the darkness and burn
    Those were days so empty a cast was a consern
    When loved ones told me that from disaster we can always learn
    In those hazy hours my mother would sit me down
    Saying don't depend on tomorrow, cause tomorrow can sometimes let you down
    Oh are you ready, are you ready for this?
    Are you ready, are you ready for it all?
    Are you ready, are you ready for the changes, changes that fall?
    No car and aeroplane rides, oh I saw the world here
    With a brand new, a brand new set of eyes
    And I met the devil at the crossroads
    She was dressed in red
    And her eyes were more beautiful that the stars
    She laid my body down to rest under the bracken
    And the moonlight covered the moors
    And I swear there was music behind every door
    Oh are you ready, are you ready for this?
    Are you ready, are you ready for it all?
    Are you ready, are you ready for the changes, changes that fall?
    Cause we all, we all, we all fall down sometimes
    We all, we all, we all feel the wings of tragedy
    We all, we all, we all see angels, angels in the hardest hours
    We all, we all, we all feel the wings of tragedy rush against us
    Oh are you ready, are you ready for this?
    Are you ready, are you ready for it all?
    Are you ready, are you ready for the changes, changes that fall?
