  • A pilgrim at the gray of dawn
    Leaving in the mist of morning
    On his journey of goodness
    Heaven sent, God blessed

    Pilgrim laughing at the world
    Spreading joy
    At the touch of his hand
    Wiping out all the misery
    Making love and history

    Those of us who don't know war
    We shouldn't try to make it
    So many did and even more died
    Do you think you could take it?

    Love lies waiting at my back door
    Such a beautiful matter of fact
    Life's like an apple
    With love as the core
    And I'll tell you ‘bout that

    Just a man in my prime
    Love was there
    But I had no time
    I was cheered and adored
    And I thought fame
    Was all the world

    Battles won and victory cheers
    Were the sounds
    I'd heard for years
    But the women I really loved
    Was losing me
    To all this blood

    I only knew I had to win
    And build a world
    Where I was king
    But leaders come and leaders go
    And that's the truth
    I came to know

    Love or war I couldn't choose
    And so both
    I had to lose
